Soul Food #118~And Rudolph~
We had the pleasure of looking after 3 of our little grandsons this weekend~
The littlest one ,Ollie..is quite the helper in the kitchen..insisted on vacuuming and doing the dishes... in his diaper no less..(cropped)..Loves climbing on chairs and playing in sinks..Yes their mom is a gentle soul.. who likes to keep him busy any way she can..:)
The older two..love crafts and building things and doing homework type activities..
I had collected many shark's teeth in Florida and decided that would be a neat activity for them to draw a beach scene.. complete w/ sharks and then we would glue the teeth..
I am so impressed w/ their talent..one shark is even eating a fish.. I said "every artist should sign their work and date it".
Imagine my surprise when Lucas(my Lulu) ,6.. wrote Décembre..and 2011..all by himself..
Yikes they grow up do fast~
For these 3 and Noah..I wanted a special little cookie for Christmas morning and had seen these everywhere on the net~
Notice I am not doing a full post..
Well they didn't turn out as I had expected..so Google them..Reindeer Cookies..and pick your options..
I decided on a peanut butter cookie recipe abounding..and look ...my reindeer are old and wrinkled:( They cracked ..
So I would opt for a different recipe next time..also I bought Tiny Twists pretzels in the US..they are bigger than I expected..:(
Many blogs said as soon as they come out of the oven press the antlers in..Mine kept falling~
I had started w/ one cookie..and thought I have mastered this..wrong..so enough mix made for many cookies..melting antlers and cracked faces..
I think I would stick to mice next year:)
All in the name of love..xx
For Ollie..Noah ,Max and Lucas.
I hope they see them w/ rose colored glasses:)
I bet many of you will get these right..I'm just saying...:)
