Small Successes-December 22nd


Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. Yesterday I folded all of the laundry that was littering my living room.  The living room looked great for all of 20 minutes before the next round of clean laundry got dumped in the middle of the floor.

2.  I spent most of Saturday baking cookies.  I made snickerdoodles [from a bag mix], peanut butter cookies [also from a bag mix], and chocolate chip cookies from scratch.  I need to make chocolate chip cookies again since they're all gone.  I barely had enough to make cookie bags to give to teachers and there was a considerable amount of balking from those who claimed that others didn't "need" chocolate chip cookies.  Claiming 14 of these coveted cookies was no small feat.

3. On Sunday night when I accidentally moved a tin of butter cookies on to the fridge door which later wound up all over the kitchen floor, I didn't cry.  Instead, I decided it was better to laugh about the disaster of a cookie fail that the night had been.  The press cookies didn't want to work (both cookie presses that we own broke in the process that yielded just 16 cookies) and my crappy store brought cookies came crashing to the floor.  At least I don't have to eat three pounds of cookies I didn't like all that much.

4. The girls made gingerbread graham cracker houses on Friday night, and I made royal icing for the first time.

5. Katie discovered that it's fun to pull hair this weekend.  I got my hair cut on Monday morning because I'm a killjoy.  Ha ha, Katie.  I know how to play your new game and I say it's game over for now.

6. The family room Christmas tree is up and decorated.  Now I don't feel like a slacker.

  1. 1) Merry Christmas!
    2) Making cookies for the teachers is no small feat, it's Herculean with predator children lurking about seeking samples.
    3) Laughing at when the cookie crumbles is a grace, so yeah you!
    See you in the new year, blessings to your whole family.
