who gets cookies becuase I understand her answer of..."it may have something to do with a certain annoying cartoon character."
Now here is a sad tale...
Isaac, my first born, the first fruits of my loins, or whatever, just walked away when we got there. He wouldn't even turn around for a picture.
Now I feel I must add a disclaimer to this unfortunate occurance...Ready?
I have never taken first day of school pictures before. Uhuh. You read right. It's this darn blog that has me whipping out my camera at every instance. I think Isaac is tired of it. Or not used to it. Or something.
And here's his door where I would have gotten a picture of him in front of his THIRD GRADE classroom. But the bell rang before I got there and he was inside. Darn. And the door was locked. Otherwise I would have gone right in and taken a picture of him at his THIRD GRADE desk. He probably told them to make sure it was locked. Stinker!
And here's the little one, my baby girl, the wee child. The one who will start preschool next week. Sniff. Sniff. She's growing up. But not fast enough sometimes. Think of all I could do if they were ALL in school for 7 hours a day....Whew! Blows my mind.
Oh yeah! Last Saturday we had the annual "Poppy's Hike". My dad, aka Poppy, takes all the grandsons and sons and sons in law, etc, etc, on a hike in a nearby mountain. This year was Bell Canyon. That's Poppy with Isaac and other cousins and Sam nearby. The "ingniter" behind Poppy is Daniel. The love of my life, my reason for breathing, the smoldering fire in my heart. Or something like that. I do like him! Can you tell?
Here's the whole group. I'd name them all for you, but I'm afraid I'd have some name mixups. They all look alike to me.
I hope your day was a great one. If your kiddos are back in school, I hope you enjoy the quietude. If they aren't, I know how you feel. But don't worry, their time will come. You may even cry. But I wouldn't count on it!

Spread in a greased jelly roll pan. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

Spread over bars while still hot. Here's the hard part...let cool completely before cutting into them.
