Got Cookies? Eleven Dozen, You Say?

The Chef!
Checking that recipe twice!
She saved me... I was forgettin' to add my egg!

Sunday was the whirlwind cookie making day at our house... Sami was our prize cookie artist!

We cranked out 11 Dozen cookies... We have peanut butter cookies, chocolate yummy cookies, and sugar cookies.. Yum! Not sure when we will get the 'Dozens of Cousins' done, or the Pioneer Woman's Spicy Molasses Cookies.. But they are on our list! As well as the cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal goodies!

Yeah, Sunday. Other accomplishments included:
  • I Made a scrapbook page for the Hero Arts Color Challenge (should have stuck to cookies)
  • Met with DH for 2 hours - business meeting (On Sunday? For Pete's Sake!)
  • Cooked all the three meals - it's a blurr. I have no memory of what we ate.
  • Did I nap? I think so! I forget! I love my weekend naps! Did I finish my book? Oh yeah. Rats... I loved that book! The Story of Edgar Sawtelle
  • Snapped some photos of the snow falling
  • Starting to do the Super Freak (as in, uh, when is Christmas, really?)
Thanks for visiting!

What great photos of the cookies. So yummy looking. Sami did a great job keeping Mom on track!

I just have to say, as any good Cookie Monster would... These "cranberry chocolate chip oatmeal goodies" sound really yummy. I'd love those directions.

Happy you napped and finished a book, too. That's a good one. I totally enjoyed that one.
