Yesterday, we got together with my family for our annual Christmas baking marathon!
Sprinkles, frosting, sugar, flour, spatula's and mixing bowls line the counters and table.
Little fingers are...well...they're EVERYWHERE-- reaching, tasting, mixing, and helping!
It's pure chaos AND also PURE joy!
It's Christmas and it's WONDERFUL!
At one point while we were baking, sweet Riley looked up at my mom, and with a huge grin declared..."Mimi, this is the BEST day ever!!!! There is just so... much chocolate!"
Boy was he was right! There was a lot of chocolate!
Chocolate cookies, chocolate covered pretzels, chocolate kiss cookies, chocolate covered Ritz...
The best part though, was the precious little fingers covered in all that chocolate!
And talk about sweetness...check out this little PINK bundle.
This is my 2 1/2 week old niece, Brooklyn!
She definitely could not be any sweeter, even if she was covered in chocolate!
I think Sophie Lu is in LOVE!
