Christmas Cookies Part 1

He likes to help. We did have flour everywhere.
Crazy hair Coop was in charge of turning the mixer on and off. He loved this job.
He also helped beat the eggs and open all the sticks of butter.
He liked wearing his Santa apron.
Parker slept with the ball in his hand the whole time.
He was playing in the cage with all of his toys and fell asleep. I got him out and laid him on a blanket and he took a long nap while we worked in the kitchen.
We had big plans for Sunday and sometimes with little kids things change quickly. On Saturday I could tell Parker wasn't feeling the best because he sat on my lap or the high chair most of the day and then had a really rough night. I woke up early to get ready for church so I could help get the boys ready since it was Christmas Sunday and Tom's Sunday to serve at church. Parker started a coughing fit and then ended up getting sick from all the coughing at breakfast. I ended up staying home and Tom took Baylor to church. Coop was still asleep so he stayed home today. Since we wanted to keep Parker in we started our Christmas cookies. Uncle Joe is home and ready for his batch. They take so long to make so today the boys and I made four batches of dough, it uses 12 sticks of butter and 20 cups of flour:). We put the dough in the freezer so that it would be ready when we started rolling them out. Baylor and Cooper were great little helpers in the kitchen. Baylor is really good at cracking the eggs!
