in the kitchen with Nolan


Last Tuesday evening….we'd had a full homeschool day and I was making a fairly easy dinner of just baked BBQ chicken and rice.  And I don't know if it was because of the fact that it was an 'easy' meal that I thought I needed to make something 'more difficult'….but I decided to make homemade sugar cookies for dessert.  Go figure.

The girls were playing in the other room and I decided to let the only other person in the kitchen with me help.  
This guy.



To say that he was excited would be a complete understatement.  (Those tippy toes!!!)


I let him pour in the sugar and then middle sister made her grand entrance for the addition of the flour.  


Nolan didn't want to share the spotlight, apparently.



But when I gave him that spatula.  Oh the joy!



At this point…he had not figured out the goodness that is cookie dough.  :)




Then enters biggest sister.  And the tears came a rollin'.




Ahhhh.  All is right with the world again.


Look at those TEARS!  ohmygoodness.



I should've thrown this one out…but I couldn't help but point out the 'last little taste' that I said they could all have.  Ha!


These 3!!


And then again…when there was no more.


Ok then he licked the spatula.



And when I ultimately moved the dough to the other side of the room.


The time snuck up on me!  I mean…..I didn't even realize he was old enough to 'help' me in the kitchen.  Where did my baby go?   It was fun and messy and a lot of work and fun and messy.  
And worth it.
