I normally don't post "personal" posts on this blog.. but considering the content of the pictures, I decided to do it anyway. This is what happens when you decide to bake some Autumn cookies for some special out-of-state family. First you bake the cookies and let them cool on the rack:
Then you hear the pitter patter of little feet who have used their sense of smell to track down something that they've figured out they're missing out on:
And since they look so cute you agree to let them "help" which turns into more eating than helping so you send them on their way, each having consumed a satisfying amount of both sprinkles and frosting:
And after they are banished from the kitchen you finish frosting them yourself, equipped with fall colors.
And by late that night you'll be able to package up delicious little apples, maple leafs and acorns to take on your weekend visit which shall include a great-grandson's soccer game, lunch at Sonic, and whatever other surprises show up along the way.
