Family Date Night: #SpreadCheer Neighbor Treat Baking

I recently heard about the Betty Crocker #SpreadCheer campaign that's going viral and thought it would be the perfect family date to kick off the holiday season!

Here's the premise: if you've heard of being "Boo-ed" at Halloween, it's the same idea for Christmas! One family starts out the chain by making a plate of treats for another family with a Spread Cheer printout or card. That family then returns the favor by sending a plate of treats they have baked to a new family or two in their neighborhood. By the end of the holiday season hopefully the entire neighborhood has been blessed with a little holiday cheer in treat form!

Because we're limited on time with a newborn, we picked up a few Betty Crocker cookie mixes so we could make a cute plate full of variety.

I love that there's only about 2 ingredients to add, and you have some delicious cookies ready in no time! Soften butter, an egg, a mix, and a mixer and you're all set (cute baking buddy optional).

We made sure to introduce our little man to one of our favorite pastimes- the holiday baking date.

And we got to enjoy his eyes get huge in awe of the mixer. Seeing things through the eyes of a baby has already made me enjoy life a lot more! I forgot how cool electric mixers are, and sometimes his awe of things remind me how cool the world really is.

We baked up several kinds of cookies together as a family. 

When we were done we assembled a large platter to start this off in our neighborhood. 
Even with a printer not functioning super awesome to use the cute printables, we made a little a little poem and went with it. 

We won't mention which family member has spit up functioning like a geyser these days, so we'll just pretend we're not all wearing new shirts and say we had a lovely time delivering cookies and teaching our baby to #SpreadCheer and give and serve during the holiday season!

To get your own neighborhood in on the action we're offering a $20 PayPal giveaway for you purchase your own cookie mixes and #SpreadCheer this holiday season! (Open to anyone with a PayPal account).
