Christmas goodies...

On Tuesday we spent the afternoon with my Mom making Christmas goodies. We wanted to do something that would be easy for Kerry to help with so we dipped pretzels. We did the same thing last year .
Is this not the largest bag of pretzels you've ever seen?!

Kerry couldn't even wait for the fun to begin before she started eating them =)

We dipped some in white chocolate and almond bark..

and some in melted Ghir*rdelli chocolate....yummm. Kerry's job was to keep tossing the pretzels into the big bowls of melted goodness while Mamaw and I stirred to coat them and then laid them out on wax paper to set up.

Kerry took time out for an ice cream break and ended up with a cute goatee.

Mamaw can't get enough of her one and only grandbaby.

I'd been promising Kerry all week that we would make cookies and it's been all she could talk about, in fact the first thing I heard when I walked through the door after work yesterday was

"Mommy, we gonna make cookies, and put sprinkles, and icing, and bake....!!!!" So
that's just what we did. She has so much fun helping to stir, and cutting out the shapes with cookie cutters and putting on the icing and sprinkles. She made snowmen, gingerbread man, and christmas tree shaped cookies. I didn't get pictures of the finished product, but they were really cute.

Enjoying a little bedtime snack of cookies and milk.

Those weren't my exact thoughts but pretty close that bag is as big as Kerry! Looks like you had lots of fun, I have lots of memories of doing things like that as a kid.
