Nope. It's not Cookie Baking Night tonight. It just looks a little like it. Tonight we babysat three nieces and nephews (Alli and her two brothers, Rylar and Enzo) on Greg's side of the family and it happened to be on the same night Emily (niece on my side of the family) was scheduled to spend the evening with us, so she joined in the fun. It was a little younger of a crowd than we're used to (Alli is 3, Rylar is 2, and Enzo is 7 months), but it was a good time all the same. Emily is 13 years old now and eager to hone her babysitting skills. She was a big help. We even did a little cookie baking project (more like a sorting and melting project, but close enough). We thank God for the opportunity to serve Him this way and spend some time with the nieces and nephews this evening.
It's okay, you can say it, he's adorable. (Not quite crawling yet but poised for action at any moment).
A little coloring
A little handwashing
A little baby holding
A little sorting
(sorting out all the yellow M&Ms--excellent project for the little ones I might add)
A little eating
(Rylar will be joining us at Cookie Baking Nights in December--this was a good trial run for us all)
