Cookie day! One week ago today we made lots of cookies and then delivered them to our neighbors. We had fun. Pictures:
T decorated this one. It looks like a devil but he said it's supposed to be a mohawk.
This pretty snowflake was decorated by a very generous shaker.
Nate was proud of his gingerbread man with a grill.
He also bragged about this "modern tree."
Here are our cookies, ready to go to neighbors. The boys delivered them all for me, which was awesome. A warm mama is a happy mama.
These are not cookies, but the same week I had to take snacks to T's preschool. Their snacks are almost always very sugary, but I can't quite bring myself to follow that trend. I always try to bring something a little healthier when it's our turn to provide snack. This time we took little sandwiches, with ham, cheese, a little mayonnaise, and cucumber. I use cookie cutters to shape them like Christmas trees, and poked them with cupcake decorations (helping them stay together and also to look more festive). I know ham sandwiches aren't the healthiest food ever, but I felt good about the kids at least getting a little protein instead of pure sugar. I heard they were a hit. T helped me put them together.
