Twelve Days Of Christmas...Day Six...Cookie Baking Day

Happy Monday! And happy last week before Christmas! Today I am sharing some pictures of our annual Christmas Cookie Baking Day. It was fun and cozy and productive, despite being a bit quieter than past years. Madison and Nicolas are across the ocean enjoying a most magical Christmas time. And Steve and Rhett were at the Steeler game, which until the last quarter was AWESOME! That left my two star bakers, Peyton and Flynn. We put on our aprons, turned on the Christmas music and got busy baking. Peyton is not only a great baker, she is also super organized. With Flynn as her sous chef, and I as her dishwasher, she managed to bake five different kinds of cookies. And of course, I had to sample each one. : )

Our little elf Zip was all ready to bake with us this morning...

And so were my girls!

The results of our efforts:
m&m cookies, chocolate chip, chocolate crinkle, oatmeal scotchies, and my personal favorite...molasses. 

Today we will burn this pretty candle.
I like this scent a lot...
It is described as a mix of pine, balsam, and holly berry.
And it makes our house smell like Christmas!

Have a cozy day, my friends.
Be sure to hop over to my Madison's blog here.
And our sweet friend Danielle's here.

See you tomorrow!
Thanks for visiting!
