Ever since going back to work after I had Squirrely, I have taken Fridays off. I really needed a day to focus on housework, and I felt like Bunny and I really needed some special time together.
Every Friday afternoon, after we have done our chores and put Baby Sister down for her long afternoon nap, we find some sort of project to work on together. This week we had a couple of Playsilks to dye.
While the silks were hanging out to dry, we made some Peanut Butter Cookies (see recipe here) to take with us to The Birth Circle the next day.
Bunny has been learning to crack eggs by cracking them into a small bowl, inspecting and removing any pieces of shell, then dumping the egg into the big mixing bowl.
She concentrates hard on the task at hand.
After mixing up the dough and filling two cookie sheets, we had a bit of dough left over, so I gave a little to Bunny to make her own cookies.
She rolled and patted and pressed her cookies down with a fork.
I bet you can't even tell what ones are hers!
She declared that she made them for papa.
When he got home, he ate every last crumb of them
and declared them the best cookies he had ever eaten.
He is such a good papa!
As soon as we pulled the last batch of cookies out of the oven, Squirrely woke up and the sister snuggles ensued.
I so enjoy Friday afternoons. I am so blessed!
I am very excited to be joining Becki, over at Organic Aspirations, as a co-host for her Eco-Kids Tuesday. When she invited me to link up last week, I hurried over to her beautiful blog! I immediately felt an instant kinship: Wives, mamas of two little girls, lovers of God, our families, crafting, repurposing, nature, and natural living! We have a lot in common.. even our location is just a couple of hours apart. So I did something very out of character for me... I asked her if I could co-host Eco-Kids Tuesday! And she said YES!! So......
