mom's little helpers

I set out to make cookies last week before the kids got home from school. Well with Jackson around the entire process didn't get finished. I was so glad it didn't though. Both kids came home and were happy to help. They peeled off all the wrappers off the Kisses for me - although I am sure a few chocolates did find their way into Anne's and Andrew's mouth - then Anne helped me roll all the balled cookies in sugar and then place the chocolates on top. I don't know if it's the little man in our house but both my big kids are so good at helping lately. Anne not only helped me with the cookies last week but with the yummy FHE desert this week. I am enjoying having a little helper in the kitchen.


Can you see Andrew's tired eyes? Right after he was done with the chocolates he just drooped in his seat. I suggested he go lay down. He then asked for a story. With my hands in the cookie dough I said "In just a minute." My little helper Anne was so sweet to then take her brother upstairs to his bed and read to him until he fell asleep. What a sweet girl I have.
