Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real~ Baking Love+ Real Housekeeping Article+A Giveaway from Anthropologie

Molly baking cookies with her Grandma.
My Mother-in-law Sandy gave us this cookie jar. It overflowed, so we had to put some of the cookies outside.

This had to go under "Happy" ~ Molly with her First Grade teacher, Mrs. DeSutter. She is so sweet, and she has been such a blessing to Molly this year!

Funny thing is, I was taking pictures of the little smokestack because I was completely enamored, but somehow it got cut off in my picture. Boo sad!

So... baking cookies is messy. . . I think she changed a total of three times during this misadventure.

We love messes...

And I'm not gonna lie, the finished product was so Pinterest unworthy I was laughing. :-)

Guess what, friends?! I have an article at Real Housekeeping today: 9 Ideas for Getting Picky Preschoolers (And School Age Children) To Eat
