Sunday,cookies, babies, work


Here is a shot of the cookie containers and my bifocals that were in my hand.  Everyone went home with trays of cookies and we still have so many left over. I will make up more plates and take them around this afternoon, and anything left will be taken down to Nampa for mom and dad.  We will be leaving on Wednesday morning.

Kelsa has been very down with her shots.  She just is not her cheerful, smiling self.  She did not let her poor daddy sleep all last night and he has to get up so early for work so she is with us tonight and squawking loudly.  But we love it, hopefully I can get her to calm down and go put her in bed with her grandpa.  I wish you could hear her.  She is so loud and irritated with life right now.

After we made cookies, I collapsed for a nap with Kelsa and she actually slept for a few hours.  Then up to do the massive clean up of trays, and cookie making supplies. Then wiping down all the sticky counters, and getting all the flour and sprinkles off the surfaces and floor.  Schmills had a ball and made a terrific mess and loved every minute of it.

We will do church on line and I have 5 brother missionaries coming for dinner.  It is fast Sunday, which means we fast for two meals and don't eat until dinner time.  We usually try and feed them on fast Sunday as they are starving.  I am doing pork chops at their request.  Then will serve homemade applesauce, garlic mash potatoes with gravy, vegetables, a broccoli salad, and we will have ice cream and cookies for dessert.  I was happy to have all the ingredients in the fridge and freezer  and did not have to go to the store.  We will be gone a week so I am trying not to add anything to the fridge.

I ran out of milk and only have 1/2 pound of butter.  I can use canned milk for the potatoes, just have to get through three more days.  Then I can buy the things we need when we get back, like milk and eggs, butter.  I need to find a good butter sale.

Here is all the food out defrosting. I need to empty the dishwasher and put away all the cookie sheets and racks and then mop the floors. I do love to cook, but clean up not so much.  Kelsa is being a pill so I think I will go rescue my daughter. 

Have a restful and peaceful Sabbath



  1. Don't forget to bring by my plate of cookies. Babies are not happy after their shots and there is just nothing that makes them happy. Poor Kelsa. I may bake from scratch some now that I have a dishwasher.

  2. It sounds like an almost perfect day! (except for the stickiness)

  3. Yum on all those cookies. I don't like the cleanup either, but they are worth it in the end. LOL

  4. Sounds like lots of yumminess has come forth from your kitchen this weekend. Poor baby hope she feels better soon.

  5. While I love baking or cooking, I really do dislike the cleaning up as well. Sometimes I think I use every pot, pan, sheet or bowl in my house.

    Have a nice trip.

    God bless.
