Thank you for your comments about our picnic and for sharing your plans for the week with me. Tracy asked for instructions on how to make the paper boats we sailed at the lake. Here you can see one in our water garden. It reminds me of "Scuffy the Tugboat" and how he needed more room to sail!
Tracy, if you know how to make a basic paper boat (fold a piece of paper in half, fold down the corners into triangles, then fold the bottom flaps up) these instructions will show you how to turn it into something more fancy. The instructions are from "Curious George learns how to ride a bike" book. Click on the picture for a larger view.
After our school work was finished today, I made a batch of Chocolate Chip Cookies. I saw the ones Christie made and had to try her recipe. I have only ever used the recipe off the back of the chocolate chip bag but we all agreed these were much better!! My pie safe is full, along with my freezer. I always say I'm going to freeze some in case we have unexpected guests but they never seem to last that long! Thank you for the recipe, Christie!
Speaking of cookies, I just have to share these pictures of my little niece, Keira....
"What is this that Mommy and Daddy left out?"
What's better than one cookie? Three!
Don't worry, she didn't really eat all the cookies and she was a good girl and brushed her teeth afterwards. :0)
Isn't she the cutest thing?!
