A Christmas tradition in my family is to make kolachkis. It is a cookie with jam in the middle sprinkled with powder sugar. At Thanksgiving, Mom and Ann taught John how to make them, so they wanted me, Chris, and Ann's sister to be able to witness how fun it is to make cookies with John. Here are some of the pictures in no particular order. Flour was John's favorite part (as you can tell) and whenever Mom would say, "More flour, " he would quickly reach for the container and grab a handful and then play with it until Mom had him spread it out.
Look at all the flour on my hands!
A cute floured look of concentration.
My brother tried to get out of the cookie making fun, but John called to him from the kitchen, "Daddy's turn!"
Ann took this picture to show that John has a long way to go before he learns the correct proportion of jam to cookie ratio. Once he filled all the cookies, Ann would secretly fix them so they were properly proportioned.
Floury kiss for Grandma.
Look of delight at all the flour he was getting to play in. When it actually came time to roll out the dough and use the glass to cut circles, John would declare every one of them "Circle." and then "Perfect!"
More flour fun!
