Snow and Treat Tuesday

We woke up this morning to snow. Still not a lot, just enough to cover the ground. This is the view from our front door, hydro wires and all.

It's been a year and half since we moved. It's one of the best things we ever did. (We do miss our friends. We still see them, just not as often as we'd like!) One of the reasons we moved was to slow down, to take time to enjoy life, to live a simpler life. The pace of life IS slower here. Having more time has been a blessing. It's alowed us to do things like Treat Tuesday.

We love to bake in our house. I wanted to give the kids something to look forward to after school. Baking seemed like a natural thing to do. Tuesdays fit. So, Treat Tuesday.

 Such happiness on those little faces. They had a blast measuring, mixing, rolling.

And squishing. I think that this was Mr. Man's favourite part.

The recipe said that sprinkles were optional. Sprinkles aren't optional when kids are around. They are an essential. Once the squishing, stamping, and flattening was done, Mr. Man was done too. Little Miss was all to happy to decorate the cookies all by herself. I think that was her favourite part.


  1. Now that sounds like a good after school activity! They look like they are having so much fun

  2. Emmy and Holly - they had a blast! Any cookie that requires sprinkles and splatting is a good thing!
