Saturday was a day for a little play. Finally! After a week of total chaos where it felt like all we did was work Phil and I have pretty much decided that we have no idea how families survive with two parents working full time. With all the snow slowing down the mail delivery and sickness taking people off the schedule he worked about 50 hours last week. I had grades due and solo festival organizing, and honor choir practicing after school, so I worked a lot more than normal as well. It made for a totally exhausting week. One we hope not to repeat any time soon!!
But Saturday. Saturday we had some time to relax. Hadley enjoyed a play date with a friend and needed (read that wanted) to take a treat with her. We decided sugar cookies and heart shaped cookie cutters were in order.
We had read a recipe calling for crushed red candy in the center of a double cut out cookie. We didn't have any red, but we did have some multi-colored old fashioned candy leftover from Christmas. So we crushed that instead and it turned out like stained glass. Very cool. To look at anyway. These are not my favorite eating cookies. But cute they are!!
