Let it Snow! And Cookie Mess!

We had snow flurries today!Here is Hannah gazing out at the snowflakes drifting down



We decided to make cookies and listen to christmas music! Sounds like a wonderful memory maker, doesn't it? And what memory maker it turned out to be! Take a look at these messy shots:

I thought this was Mike's favorite sugar cookie dough and so I followed the recipe to a 'T' evidentally, it was nothing of the sort. It turned out terrible!! The dough was absolutely awful and I had to add lots of flour... That didn't even help. It ended up being mounded into a huge "glompy" mound on the baking sheet by Hannah's industrious hands and then I smoothed it out and sprinkeled it with some pretty little sugar sprinkles. Looked alright. But it tastes pretty weird. LOL! More like bread than a cookie. I don't know... This cooking fiasco was pretty much a kitchen messer and that's IT. Oh well, we had fun. I think. At least, Hannah did! Haha! For me, I got another load of laundry out of it!!!

  2. I wish my mom had done creative stuff like that with us...but I can ALSO see why she didn't. LOL! And it looks like it was all worth it to have that mother/daughter memory.

  3. Looks as if you had a pretty neat day despite the "buggy noses!" Good for you. Make the most of it and it too will pass along with the dirty clothes and aprons!
    Love,
    Mom
