I survived cookie day. OK it was not officially "family cookie day" since we originally cancelled last week. The impromptu cookie day was to celebrate the middle boy's 7th birthday. Since it was his party only grandma B was invited. The boys enjoy family cookie day.
I managed to get all of my sewing stuff picked up and put away. OK maybe not quite put away, more like hidden away. A quilter/quilting frame without a quilt on it is kind of like a treadmill in the bedroom. Kind of a catch all. I put a shelf across the cross members on the frame, and I put everything on the shelf , or under the frame and we cover it with a sheet. Out of sight, safe from the majority of the minions.
Saturday morning the oldest boy had community service for Boy scouts, so they didn't get to our house until after 3 pm. Before they arrived I finished up the reversible apron I was making.
The reverse is just a plain muslin, but a little more body to make it last longer. Exactly like the front pocket
The kids arrived and the wild rumpus began.
The cookies, all frosted, and sprinkled. This is on a dining table which has the leaf and will seat 12 people for dinner. The boys are getting to the age where you cannot get them to take a picture without doing something crazy.
Except for The Finn.
|Finn's backdrop is the quilter with all the sewing projects under the sheet!|
This is Finn's adorable pose. LOL
We made 2 big plastic sweater boxes full of cookies, another tub full to distribute to friends and family, and the two oldest boys ran a container full of cookies down to the ancient ones. We had pizza for dinner, and cake. Fun was had by all, and while there are some sprinkles wandering around the dining room floor, the rest of the house is relatively unscathed, except for the pile of frosting and sprinkles I found on the bathroom sink this morning. Overall not a bad day.
