Everyday Life Christmas baking

One of the things I wanted to do this festive season is to bake gingerbread men and cookies with Antek. I figured he was at this cute stage where he could help me in the kitchen and follow instructions (well, at least partially…).

So one morning we put the Christmas songs on and set everything up in the kitchen. To say Antek was excited is an understatement.



He loved rolling out the dough, cutting out the shapes and putting them on the baking tray. However, waiting for the cookies to bake was a bit hard!


The decorating part was also fun, even though the kitchen was a complete mess, with icing and sprinkles everywhere. It was all worth it though as we both had lots of fun. We created some lovely memories and I am looking forward to more baking sessions in the future!
