Hey all!  Hope that your weekend was relaxing.  Ours was….sorta.  The girls baked for a big portion of the day on Saturday. I cleaned in the basement.  That is a good/icky thing.  😉  You feel good when it’s done….it’s just that it’s icky…trying to make yourself do it.  I’m working on crossing it off of my January Purge list though.  I had better hurry, January has almost come and gone.  We also had a little guy with an ouchy ear and a big guy with an ouchy neck.  😦 😦 Let’s get back to the mmmMonday! part…shall we?  That will perk this “thang” up a bit.

So…I mentioned that the girls were baking.  They got a wild hair and decided that they wanted to make sugar cookies.  Not the easy kind.  No…not my girls.  They don’t want “cheater cookies” that you break and bake. (Like I suggested.)  Plus…they didn’t want my tried and true “roll ’em in a ball and smash ’em with a glass” recipe.  They wanted the kind that you roll out and cut out. (Of course.)  So…I wasn’t sure where I had gotten that recipe before. They consulted Martha.  She always has the recipe you need.  (If it’s complicated enough. Just kidding Martha.) 😉 This is where you can find the recipe.

I was so proud of them.  They are quite the little bakers in training.  (Their husbands will love me…someday…very far away.)  Their cookies were beautiful.  Okay…I would say that even if they looked horrid…because they came from MY kangaroo pouch…but really they were adorable.  Of course we had hearts.  Our little guy even got in there and decorated one in “camo.”  They made one for Daddy too.  Of course I was proud of the turquoise.  Turquoise….is just the color of….happy.  Happy… was how I was feeling when they even cleaned up their mess. YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So anyway…when the Mr. dumped out the soup that I was going to take pictures of and feature today (He didn’t know that I was going to do that.)…my oldest said “How bout using our cookies?”  Great point, Girlfriend.  I believe that I will. mmmMonday! will be beautiful this week.  Full of sprinkles.
