Yesterday, our heat climbed back up to 100 degrees.
What to do after school???
Brenna and I thought turning down the air conditioner and making cookies sounded good!!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, to be exact...
(click on Oatmeal Raisin to get the recipe)
Brenna's favorite part is the brown sugar.
And cracking eggs.
Measuring is fun, and managing the beaters is pretty cool.
Did I mention that we like raisins?
Things always taste better when we cook together. Probably because nothing is exact...
A little extra of this, a little extra of that = YUM.
A little concentration, a lot of fun...
Just when I thought the day couldn't get any better,
We found a box on our front porch.
(We like to open boxes almost as much as we like making cookies.)
We found a sweet, sweet, kind and loving surprise from our friend,
I wish I had recorded Brenna squealing when I told her Rebecca painted this box for her.
"OhhhhHHH- How sweeeeeet!"
Then I showed her Rebecca's blog. "Coool!!" When Dad came in and asked what all this was, Brenna said, "Dad. This is my box from Rebecca. She's an artist."
Rebecca printed out her note to Brenna and she was able to read it all by herself. Thank you, sweet friend, for that extra touch!!!
THEN, (can you stand it??)
I found a sweet card for myself:
No way!!! Yes, really!! I squeal pretty well myself...
Many thanks, Rebecca. Your kindness is so appreciated.
Wish I could send you some cookies!!
