Once upon a time,
Ryan and his best friend Lee got together to frost Halloween sugar cookies.
( Lee is just 4 months older than Ryan and they are the best of buddies )
Beyond brilliant idea for a toddler. They were in heaven.
( If you are in Utah and familiar with Swig - It's a knockoff "swig sugar cookie recipe" )
This was a first time experience for Ryan.
We put on their little smocks ( which by the way, are AMAZING! I seriously need to buy some )
- my friend found them HERE
.....and got ready for the sugar high of the month.
Ryan wanted to lick all the knives of frosting.
So instead of everyone having the privilege of getting Ryan's germs on their cookies I had to step in and stop him mid act on the 3rd knife.
Lee boy. I love this kid.
Classic "toddler nibble" of the cookies.
Even baby Drew ( Lee's little brother ) got in on the action.
(( Besides the point but my dear friend is super mom.
She is pregnant with her 3rd child due in November and will have 3 children under the age of TWO.
*She is having a girl and I'm kind of freaking out because I can't help but buy girl clothes when we go to the mall. ))
Anyways, The boys were in heaven stealing candy corns every time we turned around
and experiencing cookie frosting at it's finest.
*Tip for toddlers :
1. Have lots of plastic knives.
2. Have cookies pre-made.
3. We had Halloween sprinkles, candy corn, and chocolate chips as toppings and they worked out wonderfully.
4. Have them wear a smock. :)
Gosh I'm loving this time of year with a toddler!
Everything that is already fun, is fun on steroids.
