Back around Thanksgiving, I found this kid's baking set from Bed, Bath & Beyond (sorry, I can't find it on their website). I bought it for her for Christmas, but she was already getting so much, I decided to hold it back for a special day.
It had a tacky, plastic apron inside, which really will not do for me, so ...
... on Saturday afternoon I sewed a little apron for Spenser. I used some of the vintage fabric I received last year. It has tiny red strawberries on it. So sweet. I used a pattern (Simplicity 8916) that had a vintagy feel to go along with the look I wanted.
So yesterday was the "special" day. Nothing extra special about it. As soon as I put Sawyer down for his nap, I gave her the gifts. We made chocolate chip cookies.
We didn't make the cookies from scratch. We used the "scoop and bake" kind. This was one of her first baking experiences and I didn't want to overwhelm her. Plus, we could eat all the cookie dough we pleased ...
and cookies, too.
Randomness to Remember:
Spenser has a black eye. It must be hard to have five brothers. A chair that Jack was sitting on fell over and hit her in the eye. Poor girl.
Monday night Mason came bursting into our bedroom at 3 a.m. exclaiming "Someone was tickling me and it wasn't Jack or Carter!" (He shares a room with Jackson and Carter's room connects to theirs.) He was adamant that it was real. I let him get in bed with us. After he calmed down and fell back asleep, he jumped and said, "Someone was just tapping me!" I explained that I was right there and no one was tapping him ... until Joe reached over and started to tap Mason. We all giggled. He is still certain that someone was tickling him.
