Things I once loved..I still love~
Ahh..little animal cracker cookies..
Felt like such a treat back then..
I still remember eating them..
I would let them melt in my mouth..
I have bought some for the children..
Don't know if they got the same feeling I got..
There are so many treats and snacks now..
The choice so varied..
Doesn't stop me from still loving the shape of these cuties..
Like this Dictionnaire I have told you about..
It was my first one that was French-English.
I loved it..and knew all the translations..
I loved the drawings ...the words ...the cover..
I loved to s-p-e-l-l..even M-I-C-K-E-Y...
Max does too!
Lucas likes Math..
Oli is still just cute..:)
Noah is a mix..
I think I gave my Grand Dictionnaire to Sofia Soulis with many of my Barbies etc when I was 17..and she was 5..cutest little kid on our street.
So I gave her all that..
I never even imagined.. I think.. having little girls of my own so soon afterwards.
I found this special book again through a reseller..and still love looking at the pics..
As you can plainly see.
What is it about dear things from our childhood that just bring back such vivid pleasures?
Glad I have a few..
So the cookie cutters are from Ebay..and they are darn cute..except in my set they put a duck instead of a giraffe..
You cannot complain..under $3.00 and free shipping I am not about to utter a word to them..just here.
I love to leave positive feedbacks.
I don't know how they do it.
Noah was coming for dinner so I made him a small batch of sugar cookies~
The cookies held their shape very well..I did chill the stamped and cut cookies for a few minutes in the freezer..
Next time..I would add more almond flavoring..or maybe her cinnamon suggestion.
Mind you it could be entirely my fault..as I used salted butter..I omitted the salt..that just may be the thing:)
They lacked a bit in taste I found..
But Noah liked them..♥
Like my book:)
And the cutters:)
Aren't they just so cute?
And then ..fruit cakes:)
Ours seemed hard when I think about them now....and they lasted forever in the fridge..so that.. in June... I could still pick off pieces.My dad got them as gifts I think..in the 60s...
I have come a long way since then..
My fruitcakes are all prepped and waiting..In Christmas Tins..
Thank you Pierrette for that recipe...years ago... that I keep playing with.
I will never forget you.. :)
