making cookies... FINALLY
One of my favorite activities to do with the kids is making and decorating sugar cookies. We only do it around holidays and since we ripped out our kitchen on October 1st and have been living in the aftermath for the past 6 months we missed a lot of 'making cookie holidays'... halloween, thanksgiving, christmas, valentines... But not St. Patrick's day! Not only did we make cookies but we had a St. Patrick's day Party! The kids made cool hats, ate green food, learned all about St. Patrick, made leprechaun coin bags and coins, took a trip to story time at the library, and I saved the best for last...decorating cookies. But this is the best part... after friends left Elsa and Carter were helping me finish up the rest of the cookies. As you can imagine they were having a blast until... Elsa lost her balance on the chair she and Carter were standing on, trying to catch her fall she hit Carter who in the process of falling off the chair hit the cookie stand with all the cookies. Carter ended up on the floor with a frosted cookie stuck to the side of his head. Both of them in tears and all the cookies on the floor.... and I didn't get a picture!!! You gotta love those moments!
