Making Buns

Today, the snow was falling, the wind was blowing, and this Mom decided it was the perfect day to crank up the Christmas music, and break out the mixing bowls!

Charity headed up the "Air Buns" that her dad has been dropping broad hints about lately. Katya thought it was great fun to help knead the dough!

 We figured it was probably a fun sensory experience for her too. She did a great job!

Love watching her eagerly working.


Charity also made a batch of "Molasses Crinkles" which she blogs about here. I worked on a pan of bars, and then when our projects were out of the way, Charity supervised the younger ones making a small batch of Chocolate Chip cookies since I had to go to the pharmacy to pick up a couple of prescriptions that were called in  for Katya and Kristina after they were seen at the International Adoption Clinic on Monday.

The baking seems to have been a successful activity for today on Katya's first day of Thanksgiving Break. Our cookie jar is full, there were yummy buns for supper, and will be more for Thanksgiving tomorrow. We have a small stash of cookies in the freezer for any crazy days in the next few weeks, and there are still bars in the pan waiting to be eaten!
Now, if Mom can just stay awake till she gets every one into bed tonight . . . YAWN!!!!
