Holiday Baking Part II

Whew, this is just a little sneak peak at the rest of our baking session.

Oh dear, it got more messy by the minute.

Jordan was so helpful when it came to rolling out and frosting sugar cookies.

We made snowflakes.

And we made Christmas trees.

Then I made homemade marshmallows!

Then Erma helped us wrap presents.

But she did not help us clean up the kitchen.


  1. Wow! You were so ambitious! The cookies look amazing. How were the marshmallows?

  2. I was pretty ambitious, it was a little stupid of me because I forgot that while I'm baking I also need to provide regular meals so our kitchen was actually much worse than anything in these pictures.

    The marshmallows were delicious! I couldn't find peppermint extract, so I just did it with vanilla. It was also particularly satisfying to snip them apart. They were pretty easy to do, so I think I need to make another winter batch soon.

  3. how un-thoughtful of erma to leave all the cleaning to the humans; it might be time to replace her
