Snowy Day Family Fun

What do you do when you’re snowbound?  Well, make cookies, of course!

(Um.  WHAT is that vacuum cleaner doing in my Norman Rockwell moment?)

And then eat the evidence.


At least C stops to admire her creation before popping it in her mouth.


And guess who’s the third child?  Doesn’t she look so proud of herself?


There are even a few left to enjoy tomorrow.


You may notice a plethora of circles and very few recognizable objects.  We couldn’t find our cookie cutters.  After looking high and low and lower still, we gave up and decided to use a biscuit cutter.  I even cut a few free-hand.  The trees are a little funky, but I make a pretty mean candy cane, if I do say so myself.

The recipe can be found here.  This year I used coconut oil in place of Crisco, and they turned out great!
