“The rule for all of us is perfectly simple. Do not waste time bothering whether you 'love' your neighbour; act as if you did. As soon as we do this we find one of the great secrets. When you are behaving as if you loved someone, you will presently come to love him. “

Outnumbered 10 to 1…

A note of apology to my readers...  for those of you who came here to read the post from yesterday morning and found nothing...  I wrote the post offline in Word and then posted it and discovered the pictures did not post.  Tried to fix the problem but did not have time.  Shauna says she could have told me it wouldn't work, personal experience...  :-)  So, without further ado, here's my post from 24 hours ago...

We have developed a Christmas tradition of my wife, my daughter, my granddaughters, and some friends, of getting together to bake Christmas cookies.  So, you ask, why am I posting about that in the middle of January??  Glad you asked.  When one of the participants is a medically fragile infant who is DS, and the friends have been a little sick, you don’t get together… until January 8th.  THEN you bake cookies. J

Lots of little helping hands.

Did you know cookie cutters work best upside up?  They work upside down too, just not quite as well…
Cadence preferred Grammy’s help outside of the big crowd.
Clarisse really liked putting sugar on the cookies.  There are four cookies under there somewhere…
Everybody got in on it.  Except me, I took pictures…
...and the other Mom, who held Reagan, who seemed to be just fine with that.
The end result…  can you tell which ones Clarisse decorated?
Of course, any cookie decorating party has to end with eating them, but don’t worry, there were a couple left for “Papa” to “dust”.
And I even survived being outnumbered 10 to 1…  J

  1. You mean you reveled in being outnumbered :) And I think you mis-stated it...Amy STOLE Reagan and she was ok with it.
