This week Caroline baked her first batch of cookies all by herself! She did a great job and Nick, Miles and Tara all spoiled their dinner by eating a bunch of them straight out of the oven. I only helped a little bit, with stuff like where do we keep the baking soda (NOT the one in the fridge, honey), and now she knows where the secret cookie baking cookie sheets are.
She was so proud, she even went online, and found her own recipe!! She likes my cookies, but prefers them without oatmeal, so she made them herself. She even cleaned up! Apparently am now a food blog.
Well, long time no post. Here are some things that have happened in the last 4 months, I think.
Miles had a band concert. Ok, I think that was in December, but he looks SO cute in his tux with gold lamee accessories. It was about a hundred below zero that night, and all the instruments were so out of tune, the concert took an eternity to get thru because they had to keep re-tuning. Luckily it dumped snow, and we were out of school until after New Year's.
This happened with the Driver family. Don't know, but I love this pic.
I went to Hood Canal with my Super Crafting Coven of Shrews, and our cabin came with a ginormous bag of oysters. We made amazing sauce and ate until we were stuffed. Geni went and threw all the shells in the water. I pretended I was really arty and did some watercolors. Looking out the window at the rain was very inspirational. Best damn photo I ever took of a sheep. We went to the Lodge in February, and there was a moderate amount of snow. At the Lodge, the kids went Tubing, here are Owen, Miles and Stefan. Caroline on the rope tow.Miles, likewise. Caroline and Nora, Cousin Fun!!!
