Growing Growing gone!

I think that part of the reason why I love to create and bake and make special memories for my kids is because all too soon they are out of the very phase of life you want to keep them in.
Case in point:
The night of my big Halloween dinner - we finished eating and I literally told Bart I was not to be woken until the kids were asleep in their beds and I went to take an hour long "Nap!" (Don't judge - I had been working on three hours of sleep the day before)
So, I woke up at about 9:30 that night and had to start making a couple dozen sugar cookies for Bailey's first grade class! I knew she would be so excited to see the cookies in the morning and decorate them with her friends... and she was!
My older two saw the cookies as well and they started talking about the parties they had in class when they were her age. how sad - I thought that these cookies would not be allowed nor would any of their teachers even do anything like this.
My girls thankfully still love to see a bunch of sugar cookies on the counter that they can decorate and eat but how quickly it changes from making them for class parties when they are little to enjoying some at home just because!
