cookies in the evening






The lighting in our kitchen after three o’clock is similar to the lighting in a cave. I wasn’t even going to take pictures tonight. My camera was tucked away in the office.  I had resigned myself to just taking pictures of the finished product tomorrow morning.

BUT, when this little thing marched into the kitchen wearing that hat (she found it in her room and put it on all by herself…with the flower in the front and everything) I just about fell over. Then ran to the office, grabbed my camera, and took a bazillion photos.

I had to.  Then I had to share them with you.

More details on the cookies later this week!
