It's a Good Day When...

Oh yes, it's been a good day when...
  • our dining room table looks like this - it means we're baking together!  Love, love this Gingerbread Cookie Recipe at Home is Where My Story Is.  It's truly the best gingerbread cookie I've ever tasted! 

  • I get to work side-by-side with sweet Juliebug in the kitchen.  She is becoming quite adept at making and baking cookies!
  •  I find Heatherbean with her nose buried in a book (literally!)  When she's quiet, I can usually find her on the couch or in her room reading a good book.  I love that she loves to read!

  • I have the privilege of watching both of my girls use my Grandma Robinson's cookie cutters to cut out gingerbread cookies.  I remember watching my Grandma Robinson bake cookies and loved it when we walked through the door to smell her cookies baking!

And it's a good day when...there is laughter, music, and hugs throughout the day.  

Yes, the girls and I had a wonderful day together yesterday and I am thankful!

Are you creating memories today?

All my best to you!

I love this post! We are doing a lot of baking as well, I love the yummy smells and time spent together! My boys have both taken much more of an interest in art and crafts this year, so we have decided for the month of Dec. we are taking one day a week and spending all of our school time crafting. It has been so much fun! =) It's the little things, isn't it? Have a wonderful Christmas with your sweet family Susan!
