Baker, Baker, Cookie Makers

This is the last post about our week with my sister and her family! BTW, you should go give my sister some love. She is 24 weeks pregnant with my precious little nephew! I can't wait to meet the little guy!

One of the activities I had planned for our visit was to make cookies with the girls. They both love helping in the kitchen so we knew they would love making cookies together!
Now, Chloe Jo (who is the cleanest child in the world) would not help put the butter or the crisco in the bowl. She is an odd child. Brianna, on the other hand, was happy as a clam to get her hands dirty!
They both loved helping put the rest of the ingredients in the bowl.
Chloe Jo and Brianna both thought the best part was stirring! Chloe Jo helps me in the kitchen a lot and her favorite job is to stir. She also loves to set the table and empty the dish washer!
They both helped pour the chocolate chips in the batter.
Then it was time to mix it all up! Brianna loved helping me use the mixer. Chloe Jo..eh, not so much. The mixer scared Chloe Jo (as does the vacuum and anything else that is loud), but Brianna loves loud things (including the vacuum, she tries to ride it) so this was right up her ally.

I gave both of the girls beaters to lick. Brianna dug right in!
Chloe Jo held it long enough for Aunt Chelle to get this picture and then deemed it "a mess." What a weird child she is!
Even though CJ didn't like licking the beater, she loved eating the baked cookies! Brianna, on the other hand, doesn't like sweet things so she did not partake in the cookie eating.
We had a great time making cookies and an even better time eating them (with the exception of Brianna)!
