Since there are so many friends and family members out of town who are now reading, I’d like to regularly show off some of our fun photos. Today’s are mostly from our cookie-making this morning, in which Chris and Ashar teamed up to get three kinds of tasty treats ready for donation to the 4-H auction fundraiser tonight. There might be some gratuitous cat photos, too.<
Ashar wanted to make a “food volcano,” so she shaped the dough mix into one, complete with opening in the center.
The batter for our double-chocolate-mint cookies. I’m not a mint fan, but they smelled pretty good.
I love these cookie-bakers THE MOST!
Here, Ashar expertly shapes the dough on the cookie sheet. She liked being careful to be EXACTLY the right size!
Here you can see the finished products. Our three flavors were double-chocolate-mint, white-chocolate-cinnamon-chip-swirl and toffee-butterscotch. YUM!
Gratuitous photo of Chris holding Salem…
… and super-cute, gratuitous photo of Ashar holding Mitts! These are our biggest cats – Mitts is about 19 or 20 pounds (more than a third of Ashar’s weight!) and Salem is about 22 or 23 pounds. (Not more than a third of Chris’s weight… sorry, sweetie!) We love these big boys, but not as much as I love the nice people holding them.
