We might as well inaugurate the new kitchen with kids, flour, and frosting.  It was a real mess!
 The grandkids and I made Halloween mummy cookies --
 And witches hats.
Five years have passed and Caitlin's hair is still not under control in the kitchen -- please, call the kitchen police!  Oh my.
Left - Halloween 2008             Right - Halloween 2013
Such concentration!
Have you made a mess in the kitchen with your favorite goblins  lately?

I can imagine all the fun you had! I need to make some sugar cookies soon. I actually bought some at the store yesterday for my mom and as always, was disappointed in their flavor. Yuk! There's nothing like homemade cookies.♥♫

The mummy cookies are a great idea. I'm smacking my head now Arrgh! Why didn't I think of that!

Cooking with little goblins is worth the mess! Love how you transformed a gingerbread cutter into a mummy! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

Those cookies look professionally made to me. How fun to bake with your family. Lots of memories, messy memories!
