Last weekend my husband took my oldest son to basketball practice so I was home with my two youngest kiddies. Of course, when I have a bit of spare time my first instinct is to bake. So I adorned my kids with aprons and chef hats and we went to town baking up these Sour Cream Christmas Pinwheels! They had a blast posing for the pictures and I got to spend some quality time with my kids!
Every time I bake with my kids they are always so enthusiastic at the beginning, pulling out ingredients from the cupboard, taking out all the measuring cups/spoons and wanting to add everything in the bowl at the same time. This time I decided to place all the ingredients on the table and let them see how and when to add the ingredients. It worked out perfectly and they had fun taking turns helping mom in the kitchen. The only thing I noticed is that when it was time to clean up they were nowhere to be found! I’m sure my house isn’t the only house that happens in!
With the new chef hats and aprons I received in the mail my kids are more excited to help me in the kitchen. I think they felt like real little bakers (as they should!). With Christmas next week I hope we can whip out a few more recipes and enjoy our holiday time together! I can’t wait!
As you can see, I have some goofy kids who love to pose for the camera!
