Baking with Betty (or I should say Bettys)

Last Saturday, Maddy and I started what we plan to be an annual holiday tradition!

Baking with the littles!
 This year, only granddaughter Janie met the age requirement - 4 years old -- for baking fun!  
Next year, her brother Walt will meet the required age too!

After we picked her up, we took her out for lunch!  
She had a special meal of chicken tenders, french fries and chocolate milk.  
She followed her Aunt Maddy's lead and dipped her fries and her chicken 
in ranch dressing and washed it all down with that delicious chocolate milk. 

Jane was quite the little baker!  She turned the candy cane 
around so it was the letter "J."
After the cookies cooled and were frosted, she was in charge of sprinkles!
That girl knows how to put some sprinkles on cookies!

Almost time to test the cookies!
Betty Crocker always does a taste test!

Is that picture behind her crooked or is my picture-taking crooked??  It's driving me crazy!

Jane declared the cookies to be out of this world!
She made sure to take some home for her brothers and also for her friends!

We had such a fun time!
Bonus - Muffy enjoyed tasting a 
few sprinkles that fell on the floor and lots of playtime with Janie!
A tradition is born!

What fun to have some cookie baking partners. Isn't it crazy how far those sprinkles travel around the kitchen? I'm still finding them.
