Silas woke up this morning and the first thing he wanted to do was make Snowman Cookies. I’m not exactly sure where he got the idea from… but he was really sold on it.
It was a busy day today, my to-do list was long in preparation for my trip tomorrow, and making Snowman Cookies — especially so early in the morning — wasn’t really on the agenda.
But I’m working on learning to say “yes” to the mess, so I agreed that we should make them. And we had a blast making them together.
Watching my little Silas roll the dough, intently cut the snowman, and carefully put them on the baking sheet warmed my heart on this chilly November morning.
These are the moments that matter most. These spur-of-the-moment times when I say “yes” to something that might seem a bit messy and inconvenient.
These are the memories I’ll treasure long after there are no more little hands eager to help me in the kitchen.
I may not have gotten everything done on my to-do list today, but making Snowman Cookies on a whim with my 3-year-old was a whole lot more important than most of those things anyway.
P.S. Sadly, I completely forgot to take pictures this morning while we were making the cookies… and every single last Snowman was eaten by tonight. But I thought you’d enjoy these pictures of the kiddos having a little afternoon tea party today. If you can’t tell, they have quite a bit of fun together. 🙂
