The Weekend-Cookie Exchange

This weekend is what holidays are made of.

It was amazing and I had the best time, plus spending all of that time with my boys makes me beyond happy.


Friday it was grocery shopping (which I will NOT be doing on Friday's anymore. It was awful I'm switching to Monday's), take out and movie watching.


Saturday- Grayson and I got up and then once we finished breakfast we went right to the kitchen to make cookies. We had our cookie exchange the next day so I had 6 dozen to make. I ended up making 8 so that we had a  few dozen for our house. We made M&M cookies. Grayson was so good and after 2 hours in the kitchen,making 8 dozen cookies, eating a few handfuls of M&M's, eating a cookie and getting all the dishes done we relaxed until lunch time.

Once G ate and went down for his nap I ate really quick showered and got ready for the Michael's work party that night.

They have it at this awesome restaurant and it is decorated so beautifully for the holidays. We got our family picture taken and the good was ahhhhhmazing. Then it was Santa time and well my kids thinks Santa is out to get him or something. However after we were back at our table and the present was open (a book) he kept saying "Santa book". He loves the book just not the jolly old head elf himself.


Sunday- We went to my mom's for our cookie exchange. We decorate the cut outs there with all the kids and my boy did such a good job. He only ate one cookie and decorated about a dozen. He loved every second of it and then once he was done was in the living room rough housing with the boys. Let me just say my boy can hold his own. We got home and it was lunch and naps for everyone. Once we were all awake and Michael was home we decorated the tree while watching our Bills lose horribly. Blah but decorating was fun.


This week I'm going to finish my wrapping make a few more cookies and just enjoy. I loved baking with my sweet boy and I love having him in the kitchen with me. Plus I'm trying to make the effort to soak up with moments because if this year has taught me anything it's that time flies by.

Happy Monday!
