Cookie Extravaganza!

Don't worry, no babies were harmed in the making of these cookies! We noticed from this picture that Wells is about to touch the hot cookie sheet, but neither of us ever heard him cry, so I don't think he actually did... Pay attention, Dad! Wells insists on being carried around all day, but we'll have to stop baking with him now that he has started reaching.

We decided to take advantage of being snowed in on a friday night. We made a huge batch of sugar cookies and decorated them for our neighbors and ward Christmas party. It was such a fun project to do with Nora. She is finally to the age that she is able to help (a little) instead of just make messes and thwart progress. She did managed to get a hold a of a little chili pepper shaped cookie cutter and went crazy with it. Not exactly Christmas-y, but oh well.

Wow, those cookies look great! I don't have the patience for cookie-cutter cookies, I'm impressed you made so many!

I think Sarah and Wells are only a couple weeks apart. I've started putting her facing me in the carrier when I'm cooking, but without the front buttoned up behind her head since she can support her neck now. She can still move her head and look around, be carried, but not reach the dangerous stuff.
