Christmas Eve Baking

Today we made gingerbread cookies and cinnamon rolls!

It was my first time making something with yeast and kneading and all that, so it was very exciting. We're baking them for Christmas Day breakfast, so I'll have to report back on the final result!

All rolled up!

Now they look like cinnamon rolls

My helper kept playing with the extra cinammon sugar for quite a while... he would have been happy doing that for hours!

But he had other work to do. He was a very serious cookie decorator. He had to add the m&m's multiple times to his cookies because after he put them on, he would take them off and eat them!

The finished cookies! Yummy!

And, of course, some pictures of the boys.
Jamming in jammies last night

This morning, DT added in the kazoo

Remind anyone of this boy?

Those cookies look really good... wish I could be there to have some! And homemade rolls - I thought those always came in a blue can that popped open! Merry Christmas from Aunt M!

yes, we'll definitely need the report on how the cinnamon rolls turned out - they looked very promising.

you may need one more brother for the guitar, ukulele and kazoo band. after all, there are three hanson brothers and maybe (not sure) three jonas brothers ...
