When I woke up this morning it looked like this:
I love it when it snows and it covers everything. I actually gets me thinking about Christmas and puts me thinking about Jesus' birth and serving others. But Emery was having a couple of friends over to play and we decided to make "Surprise Snowballs." A recipe from my childhood days from the book Cookies for kids. (these recipes never have let me down...seriously, I know it sounds dumb, but I love this cookbook!)
So the recipe is like a shortbread cookie recipe and you put M&M's in the middle, cook them and sprinkle with powdered sugar. (hence: snowballs) The girls (and Ethan) had fun making surprise snowballs on a snowy day.
Ethan is showing his anticipation for friends to come over and make cookies. (what a goof!)
The kids smiling proud of their rolled cookies.
It got messy! But the kids loved every minute!
Powdering the "snowballs." I gave them each individual bags so they could shake their own cookies.
The finished product.
Mmmm...they were good. Thanks for coming over girls! We had a blast.
