Family Baking :)

I so love family time. 

Jeffrey has lots of time off this week so we starting it out right on Saturday by making homemade bread and cinnamon rolls. 

This is a "Ratliff" tradition and one of Jeffrey's (and mine) favorite memories with his mom. Every time we would go back to Missouri she would have glorious fresh bread coming out of the oven. And when she made cinnamon rolls...they didn't last more than 5 minutes. Delicious! 

So we decided that this was going to be one of our family traditions together as well. Aiden loves to help in the kitchen so as soon as I said, "wanna make bread" he was off and running to the kitchen. 

Jeffrey's favorite part is rolling out the dough for the cinnamon rolls. 

Glorious bread that we finally perfected. My dear sweet mother in law tried to teach us forever to get Grandma Magruder's bread right. We always ended up putting too much flour in, but this time we got it right. 

Man were these ever yummy!!! We had to hold ourselves back from eating the whole pan at once!! 

I love creating new family traditions together, especially while in China and our traditions are not always going to be the same here as they are at home. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!
