cookie of the week, x's and o'sWednesday, February 21, 2007
Stop the insanity! Soon I will be speaking at a support group. I, am addicted to aprons. My family thinks that I have gone mad. All of course for the other girl of the house. We now think of aprons as an accessory to our favorite outfit. Sort of like a new necklace or bracelet. (good thing the weather is going to break soon)
I was in the fabric store not too long ago and walked by this fabric. I remembered that Erin had mentioned, Tie One On, and decided to play along. The rule was hearts.
Andrews pick this week. He chose candy topped brownies. I tried to get him to come up with something different, because I think boxed brownies are just as good. But nothing else looked good to him. In the picture we have of this cookie, they have all different colors of M&M's. He wanted only brown. We didn't have any brown, and since this is his second day home from school (sick) I haven't been to the grocery store. I convinced him into red/white, his school colors. And after I put them on this plate, he said it looked like a tic tac toe board. So that is what we did, played tic tac toe. He was kisses, I was hugs. Winner gets to eat one.
Hmmm, maybe he is not so sick after all.
