Planning has begun for our first grandchild Christmas cookie extravaganza.
Next week-end we've invited all nine of our grandchildren to come and bake cookies. We might throw in tree-decorating, too, and I have a craft project in mind if the kids get bored.
I have a feeling that my ideas might be bigger than my reality, but it is fun to dream: what kinds of cookies can children from 18 months to 15 years collaborate on? How do we fit in naps, lunches, and silliness and still get the cookies baked? Who will clean up the kitchen when it's all over? And how long will it take us to recover?
Stay tuned for a report!
