baking cookies

Yesterday, the kids and I baked snowman cookies.

We had lots of fun, lots of warm, fuzzy moments in the kitchen and I wondered why we didn't do this more often. They worked so hard decorating their own snowmen. Here's Maria's....I don't know why she has that spacey look on her face...

And Kain's, a chocolate snowman...

Jack's didn't last long enough to get a picture before he dug in....


Then the drama started. Jack dumped two large bowls of sprinkles all over the kitchen floor. And Maria bumped into Kain, causing him to drop his cookie, frosting side down, on the living room rug. This caused Kain to have a nervous breakdown...he *did* work a long time on that cookie...and it was still perfectly edible, but, you know, it just wasn't the same. I wasn't thrilled either. You can't tell in the picture above because of the chocolate frosting, but that sucker was doused in blue icing and after scrubbing my way through four rags and half a can of Resolve, my carpet still has a blue tinge.

Melanie,
Kain looks so different!!! He's really slimmed down and looks so much older than in your picture at the top of your blog! Wow. What a difference. Sorry about the rug.

Oh, Mel. At least it didn't ruin your new kitchen cabinets...right? Bright side...bright side...

I know! Isn't he skinny? He hasnt' gained any weight in the year he's been here, just grown up into the extra weight he used to have. He looks great!

Yeah, that rug is getting pretty sad looking. It's in the living room and pretty light colored...sees a lot of abuse. :)
