Cookies and Children

I taught Johanna how to make Chocolate Chip cookies today.

She's quite obviously never been in a kitchen before. This was proven to me yesterday, when she asked to cut some bread for dinner and promptly cut herself.

Oh-How she LOVES the mixer! And measuring ingredients!

But the best part? Licking the dough while scooping the cookies onto the cookie sheet.

In fact, we had lots of helpers once we got to the licking part :)......

You know you have a bunch of children when you have to dip a CLEAN spoon into the cookie dough in order to give every child a turn to "lick the spoon!"  :)


  1. Adorable pictures! :) Glad you all are feeling better! :)

  2. Nothing like homemade cookies! Love the photos!

  3. Oh your pictures are priceless!!!

    My little Ethiopians NEVER ask to lick the spoon. They love to help in the kitchen but I sorta, kinda, kept that little licking treat from them, and I'm feeling like I should show them.... I just drop the beaters or spoons in the sink.... oops....


I welcome any and all comments as long as they are Christ-honoring. Please let me know what you think!
