Day 6 of Seven Days

Wow...I am a blogging maniac this week!! Part of it is because lots has been going on to blog about. And part of it is because I am doing the Seven Days photo project. This is my day 6 of 7 days picture. Its me by my frozen lilac bush. During winter time there is nothing prettier than icy trees. They are so pretty. I think in Swedish its called a horfrost.

A big storm is headed our way. With the weather, comes a change of plans. This morning I was really grumpy and sad about it. But then decided that life is what you make out of it. So instead of sulking all day about not getting together with family tonight for Christmas, Matt, the boys and I tried to do some fun things around here. First we all stayed in our pajamas until lunch time. That was great!! Then we decided to make a variety of cookies. Christmas is the time for baking right?

Josh and Zach were especially excited about this. Alex was happy too of course, but Josh and Zach seem to really enjoy cooking more than Alex. I liked that we all made cookies together as a family.

Zach is a cookie dough monster!! He (and I) would much rather eat the dough than the actual cookie.

Yesterday we made sugar cookies for Santa. Today we made peanut butter blossoms. These have always been a favorite cookie of mine but I have never made them before. I am not sure why. But I am definitely going to be making them again!! They were heaven....especially coming out of the oven when the chocolate was all melty.


We even let the boys put the kisses on top. They were good at it and I was happy they didn't get burned! :)

This was an alternate of my seven days shot. The boys and I were being silly in the reflection of the mixer.

We also made oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Those were good too, but not as good as the peanut butter ones. But really is there any better combination than peanut butter and chocolate together?


  1. I have not made peanut butter blossoms in ages! I should do that one day soon. Also, way to make the most of a cruddy situation. :-)

  2. Katrina, Merry Christmas to you and your family!
    Поздравляю с Рождеством и Новым годом!
    Привет из России!
