Making Sugar Cookies with Gymboree!

February 12, 2018

We had four kids in five years! In the beginning, I’m not gonna lie, it was really challenging. Every single one of them needed so. much. attention! I knew there would come a day though, when them being close together in age would work in our favor and they’d all be best friends who loved each other and kept each other company. Well my friends, those magical years have begun. My kids really are all best friends and they see the world with wonder and endless possibilities. It’s a pretty neat thing to experience a house full of dreamers who haven’t been told to act a certain way by the world. They express themselves however they want and it’s pretty awesome!

Today I want to share one of our favorite Sunday activities we do together as a family + the yummiest Sugar Cookie recipe you’ll ever make!

They were hiding from me because they knew taking a tablet without permission was wrong. Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation? I knew that despite my best efforts to limit screen time, I needed to find a better solution than just trusting my kids!
