On Thursday, Hubby and I joined Noah for lunch. He loved having us there. It was nice because at this age they still love kisses and hugs from Mommy and Daddy in public lol :) Then,
Friday I was able to go to lunch with Noah again because he was Pioneer of the Week. Thank you Mary!! :) He just loved having me there!!
Then, all afternoon the girls and I made 2 different types of cookies. I will share the YUMMY recipes on my other blog in the near future. The first was Spicy Molasses Cookies. I have been looking for a recipe that taste as close to my Grandma Hall's cookies as possible and I think I found them!! They are delicious....but will never have the love that Grandma put into them.

Lemon Lover's Cookies
Great with hot tea!!
I also made reindeer and reindeer food with the girls. They had so much fun mixing up the sparkly food for the reindeer on Christmas Eve. Syd tried feeding the reindeer on the computer. It was so cute!! I think she will expect them to ACTUALLY be in the yard when she feeds them. :)
On Saturday morning I got up, packed my stuff and the kids stuff and headed to PA to drop my kids off at my mom's for the day and night. Hubby had basketball practice and poker all night, so my parents took the kids shopping and out to lunch and they spent the night with them. I, yes, me, little ol' me, took the QUIET drive to Pittsburgh, ALL BY MYSELF with MY OWN MUSIC to visit my college friend Kim. I had such a good time with her!! She took me out to a DELICIOUS Italian restaurant, we went and bought scrapbooking stuff, and went back to crop the night away. Here is her little girl and a couple pages I made......
