Valentine's Day Kitchen Adventure

Linton and I went out last night because he is working today. So today the kids and I put on our aprons and went to work in the kitchen. I needed to make a few dozen heart shaped sugar cookies for the kids to decorate on Sunday. So I enlisted some help, and I am using that term very loosely, and got it done.

They had a lot of fun rolling and cutting. A little too much fun I think. They had more flour on them in the end than we used on the table and rolling pin. I took pics of the process and forgot to take pics of the end result.

We had finished the cookies and I was getting ready to clean up and I turned around and beheld my son putting his face down into the flour. At that point I was just relieved he had waited until the end!

Makiah was "drawing in the flour" and then rubbed her face. Needless to say that they washed their hands more than rolling and cutting.

Our mess!

It was a very fun day and afterwards we went to the church because I needed to get the decorating done. So it was a very full day!

Heart tip: Forgive someone and love them anyway. When we harbor hurt feelings we become bitter. Bitterness has very physical effects. Be kind to your hurt and forgive someone today.
