Why does this NOT happen on a school day????
It is Saturday,
two weeks 'til Christmas,
8 more work days before winter break,
and 8-12 inches are expected today...2 pm and the snow is still falling...
so it was a good thing the dough was already chilled!
Grampa would be proud that Owen is already learning
to perfect his dough-rolling skills!
Yes, that is chocolate on Owen's face...admit it:
You "taste-test" too!
Gabby didn't really get the whole making-cookies thing,
but she liked playing in the flour!
You'd never guess our end-product could be so pretty! :-)
Well...we think so!
I can't wait to build one in the snow piles made by the plow guy who dug us out!
We traced snow-flakes, colored gingerbread men & Christmas trees, and cut coffee filters to make snowflake decorations for Gabby's party next week...
However, it is only 2 in the afternoon...
how will we fill the rest of today's hours?????
make more cookies?
chocolate covered toffee?????
have monster truck rally?
or car races on the kitchen floor?
I asked Rog to pick up some egg nog...hmmmmmm
Yes, Rog gets stir crazy so he "risked his life" to go get some groceries. He was volunteered to make dinner tonight...he chose a pork roast in the crockpot!
How did I ever take him for granted before?
He just made it back! Yeah!
And, he told me the new forecast calls for 12-15 inches of snow!
