Yesterday morning Zachariah decided that he wanted to push his chair from the playroom all the way to the kitchen. He quickly climbed on it, got to a standing potion and then asked if he could "ook" (cook).
I tried to tell him that I didn't have the patience for that at the moment, but it is hard to communicate that to a toddler. Especially when he is excitedly drumming his fingers on the counter. So I gave in and went to the pantry to find something that we could "ook". :)
I emerged with a bag of oatmeal cookie mix, and after checking the expiration date we went to work!
Let me just go ahead and say that I have the cutest helper in all the land. Whew. I am glad I got that off my chest. It was suffocating me there for a second.
And the cuteness doesn't stop there. The tip toes are by far one of the cutest things ever. I LOVE when he stands on his tip toes. And when he is standing in a chair on his tip toes!?! That right there is almost too much cuteness to bare.
Oh my. See? I told you. The feet are just too cute.
Ok, enough cuteness. Let me show you some not so cute cookies.
These are some of the deformed batch of cookies. Zachariah wanted to use our Noah's Ark cookie cutters, and even though I knew it was not going to be pretty, I let him use them anyway. If you use your imagination you might be able to see an ark and a bear in that picture. But only if you have a really good imagination.
Once we got that out of our system we made some normal shaped cookies. Zachariah and I snacked on a few as soon as they cooled off, and boy were they good! He was so proud of his cute little cookies! :)
