Fun on a Cold Sunday

January 26, 2009

On Sundays we almost always go to my parents’ house.  My son loves swinging, even when it is bitterly cold outside.  I took him to the swings for just a few minutes.  Then he said, “Okay, I’m finished swinging.  Let’s go inside Grandma and Granddad’s house.”  He already had badly chapped lips, so I was glad he wanted to get out of the cold.  But I did get some really fun photos while he was swinging.

Back in the kitchen, my mom and my daughter had made us piggy cookies.  They only need to be baked for 9 minutes and are based on a recipe from the book Cookie Dough Fun (2007).  They left out the peppermint flavoring.  The cookies are already gone; they were so delicious and cute.

    Cute!!! It’s too cold to go outside, even for a moment. We have to layer up just to run out and get the mail. 😦

    It’s stuff like this that I cherish in my memories even more than big vacations or other “major” events.

    Those cookies are too cute! Your son really looks like he’s enjoying himself. Em loves to swing too but I draw the line in winter. I still can’t believe there’s no snow for you yet?!? I’ll mail you some 😉

    I wished we lived closer to relatives to do regular things like that. (My 17 year old self just slapped me for such a statement! 🙂

      CG, yes, that one doesn’t work as well as the ones with M&Ms. It has pointy-freak-of-nature-eyes for sure.
