I am a day behind on my "Cookie" blogging. It has been a bit of a crazy weekend. First and foremost the awful news of the shooting in Connecticut has just really put a damper on the holidays. I cannot seem to get the people of Newtown out of my head. I just cannot fathom what they are going through. You go along wrapping, baking, doing the normal Christmas things, then you hear a song or see a child in the mall on Santa's lap and it stops you in your tracks. There will not be any consolation for those poor people. I just hope they know that we are all mourning along with them. They are not alone in this..
So, our boys left Northern NY on Saturday morning and were home here in Missouri by 10pm Saturday night. We had told them to stop and get a hotel, but you know how young boys are. "Oh Mom and Dad, we can do the whole 16 hours in one day". My husband must have called them 20 times during the day. "Where are you", "How's the weather", "How's the car running?". They were glad to get here just so the phone calls would stop.
So, in addition to that, our little Baxter has been very sick all weekend. Vomiting and pooping all over. Our normal gregarious, friendly, hyper dog has been down for the count. While he wasn't listless, all he wanted to do was cuddle. The vet says he just has a bad bacterial thing, probably ate something he shouldn't have while roaming in the woods. He should be through the worst of it, thank god!!!
So, with all of that, I just plain forgot to add yesterday's cookie recipe, so here it is. Come back later today for Cookie # 5.
|Bags of puppy chow ready to go!! I didn't really know until recently that people in the family really wait for this every year! If anyone wants the recipe let me know.|
