Busy Day

I love to bake, but don't really enjoy eating all I make, so the upcoming family reunion is a perfect opportunity-- I can bake and let someone else eat it. The other day I made a big batch of pumpkin chocolate chip cookies, and today I made 2 more types. If you would like recipes for any of the cookies, let me know. They are better than the pictures make them look, I swear.  I just don't have the energy to type the recipes in right now. 

My busy day today, paired with the long MRI appointment for Bud yesterday (no, I don't have the results yet), have left me a little pooped (sitting in the 100 degree heat for Ginger's game tonight might have drained me a bit, too, I guess). Anyway, don't whip out the violins-- I didn't mean this to be a woe-is-me-fest or anything.  On to the goodies!

Here are the super nummy (and really rich!) chocolate peanut butter cookies:

The kids had fun rolling these chewy sugar cookies in different colors of sugar:

In addition to making the 2 batches of cookies, I also made some more wands. When Miss Pea came to visit the other day, she decided that she really wanted a wand like Bud's. To make it fair, I decided I'd better make enough wands for all of the cousins to have one if they wish. Hopefully there won't be too much fighting over which one to take.  

Tomorrow is my birthday, and as much as I'd like to spend the day lounging around, I have a lot more to do (ie. laundry, packing, more treat making) before we go on the family reunion. Time for bed, I think.

HAPPY B-DAY! I hope that you are able to find a bit of time to yourself today. Looking forward to "celebrating" tomorrow (and more specifically over lunch on Saturday). T.

You like to bake, but not eat? I like to eat, but not bake- What a perfect pair we'd make :) Your wands are AWESOME btw. And the most wonderful of birthday wishes to you, my dear!

I swear I could smell the cookies from the picture. They looked really good.
Those are some seriously good wands, are you sure they don't actually do magic?
Happy b-day!
