Cookie Dough Day

I plan to make several kinds of cookie dough today to put in the freezer.  I will start baking next week after Husbands surgery.  So far here is my list:

  • Sugar Cookie Cut Outs
  • Super Dupers
  • Snickerdoodles
  • Chocolate Chips
  • Peanut Butter Blossoms
  • Linzers

I will also make Cream Wafers (the dough doesnt freeze well AT ALL) and fudge and white fudge. I have no idea at this point what our menu will be for the holidays…or really what day we will all gather at our house for a meal.  This whole surgery thing has me playing things by ear you know? I plan to post a picture of our tree this evening when the lighting is pretty and I can get a good shot.  This is the first year in many that we have had a live tree and I do love the way it smells!


Did you know we homeschool?

Yep…this is year 20 for us.  I am not EVEN kidding.  We have been at it that long.  TWENTY years.  WOW.  That sounds amazing even to me and I have been here almost every day! This is a video I found on youtube.  Perfect response to all the jabbing we have endured over the years.  I will be the first to tell you homeschooling isnt for everyone…but neither is school. Enjoy.
