Making Holiday Cookies with the Kids – Video

There are so few pictures of me when I was a kid. I am the youngest of 4 and by the time I came around my parents were burnt out. There is even one picture of my sister that my mom tries to pass off as me. I vowed this would not be the case with my kids.

So when my sons were born, like any new mom with a digital camera, I took hundreds of pictures. More of the first born than the second, but still a lot.

What I don’t have is video. It just never occurred to me. When I was given a Sony Handycam at an event hosted by the fabulous Kimberley Blaine, they gave us everything to shoot a video of the kids making cookies. A Sony Handycam plus cookie mix, chef hats, and decorations. At first I thought I would do gluten-free cooking videos without the kids. It seemed too hard to coordinate all three of us doing an activity together and then documenting it.

Then unexpectedly we had a free afternoon and they wanted to make cookies. It was so much fun. I’ve watched the video a couple of times and now I regret not taking more video of them when they were little. I hope this is a new tradition.
