1st day of December! Advent calendar begins. A little bit stressful coming up with an activity for the family to do everyday, but oh, so worth it!
Carson picked out the paper in the pocket with the #1 on it. "Bake and decorate sugar cookies and take them to the ladies at the Beehive Home." The cookies were a lot of work. The kids put the first batch on the pan too close together so we had a cookie pancake. The next batch was undercooked. The batch after that was dark brown on the bottom.
In the end, I frosted the cookies alone. The kids retired to bed before the project was finished! Being dedicated to this December advent calendar may be tougher than I thought!
