every sunday we bake cookies. its kind of a tradition since i was a kid. i remember always being in the kitchen on sunday. we made muffins, pretzels, cookies. it was a great way to pass the time and we had fun doing it together. so now i do it with addie. i think getting your kids in the kitchen with you is really important. i let addie pour all the ingredients in the mixer. i let her smell the vanilla. i let her turn the mixer on and watch it spin. she loves it! and she gets so excited that she created it! i have many recipes for cookies and love to try new ones. we end up taking them to marks moms that day so they arent staring at me all week.
