Advent Day Seven: Make Cinnamon Ornaments!
Willow and I attempted to make cinnamon ornaments today! I say attempted because (SPOILER: They sucked.) But we had fun trying!
Willow was Mommy's little helper this morning and really enjoyed assisting with the easy tasks.
Not pictured: Willow sticking the cinnamon in her mouth repeatedly.
We finally had a dough-like consistency, so Willow helped me roll it out and make the shapes.
Not too shabby, right? The hard part was getting them onto the baking sheet. I think I made the dough too thin and possibly too wet, because they weren't holding together very well. Willow got bored during this tedious process and I found that she'd wandered into the living room to watch YouTube videos.
Bailing at the first sign of a challenge.
I eventually got them onto the sheet, but had to re-mold some of them back together. Also? Don't use wax paper.
A few hours later, I popped them out of the oven... and wa-la!
... NOT. Lies, I tell you. All lies.
At least they smelled good.
Oh well... There's always next year.
