    A Look Back.

Do Over.

I baked you cookies.  And I was so excited to share them with you!

They were delicious – Casey and I both agreed.  Huey agreed as well – after he ate all two dozen…

I had hoped to share the recipe and photos with you today, but the cookies made their way into doggie doom before I could photograph the final product.  I also made you soba noodle salad.

That disappeared as well.

And while I was indeed cooking for you, I was also cooking for my mom’s group, who was headed to my house within about two hours of all my food disappearing.  Enter panic mode.

Cullen graced me with a one hour nap that allowed me to frantically shower, get dressed, vacuum, and quickly re-make noodle salad and throw together a chickpea dish (no time to re-bake cookies!).  With five minutes to spare, I moved the coffee table out of the way and prepped our living space for the arrival of our mini guests.

I dished up what I had quickly re-made for lunch…

And I wiped down the counters to hide the cooking mess so that no one knew that it looked like a tornado went through just minutes prior.  Our kitchen is such a dream to cook in!

I set out a few flavored kombuchas so we’d have something fun to drink while the babies played.

And PLAY they did!  Rolling, crawling, tugging, crashing – it’s amazing how much this group has changed since our first meetup when they were just two months old.

They used to lay like lumps and just stare at toys and colors…

And now they are four distinct, hilarious little people.

I can’t say enough about how rewarding it is to have such wonderful moms and babies in my life.  So fun!

Unfortunately, just as our friends were leaving, Casey called to tell me that his wallet, phone, and watch were all stolen from his locker at the gym.  Someone ripped his lock right off!  So the rest of the afternoon was spent cancelling cards and making phone calls.

And now, I’m headed back to the kitchen to make you another batch of cookies.  I apologize on Huey’s behalf for delaying them an extra day.  You can bet I will be guarding this batch a little more closely…

Getting your stuff stolen is the absolute worst feeling ever. I had a suitcase stolen out of car about a month ago. I stuff in there was expensive, but luckily most of it has been replaced already. Good luck on the second round of cookies!

[…] was supposed to be cookies.  I baked them again, Huey ate them again.  I don’t want to talk about it.  Yes, I am a fool.  Moving […]

Amazing picture of Huey! He looks so ashamed, bless him!

What I love about the second baby picture is that the little girl looks a bit like she is groping both the boys either side of her and they look like they don’t mind one bit! Cute!

Ahaha…Cullen’s face in that last photo is just amazing.

Ugh. What a crappy day. My wallet was stolen last summer, and it was SO FRUSTRATING. Especially since the perp only made off with $11 and a card for a free cookie. I wanted to scream “WAS IT WORTH IT, CHUMP?!” Such a pain to cancel cards, get a new driver’s license, etc.

I wonder if they redeemed for the free cookie…

I LOVE your end table! And we’ve been looking for end tables everywhere. Can I ask where you got it?
