Big, fat flakes!
We were mostly drenched with rain yesterday, but in the afternoon, we were greeted with snowflakes.
Naturally, Caroline was on cloud nine; I thought it was kind of cool too, but mostly because there wasn’t any accumulation. Snow is only fun when you don’t have to shovel it.
The flakes didn’t last long and I’m sure there will be more to come this winter, but we enjoyed the snowy distraction. Today, the sun is shining; I’m still hunkered down inside because it’s cold out there. And also, I have nothing else to do.
Don’t worry, I’ve been spending my inside time wisely by shampooing the living room carpet and making frosted sugar cookies for the post-Pumpkinology party in Caroline’s class tomorrow. Except, I’m not sure they’re allowed to call it a party. Evidently, you can only have two parties per year….any other ‘parties’ are called ‘celebrations’ or something dumb like that.
I used this soft frosted sugar cookie recipe. And now that I just re-read the recipe, I think I over baked my cookies. Oopsie.
They look good, though.
Thankfully, kids don’t care much. I hope?
I’ll just be sure to keep a slice of bread in the container over night to make sure the cookies don’t dry out. Have you ever used the bread trick? I’m not sure where I learned it, but if you keep a slice of bread in your cookie container, they stay soft.
