What do you do when you are babysitting your sister’s kids, and you are trying to keep 2 twin boys occupied? You make cookies!!

I’ve always dreamed of having my kids help me in the kitchen. But since my little girl is still to young to help, I was excited when I had the chance to have these two handsome boys help me out a couple of weeks ago.

We decided to make some cookies for when their brother and sisters came home from school that day. They had fun putting the ingredients into the mixer and then watching as the mixer went round and round. The best part, though?
