A few of my favorite things

These are a few of my favorite things....

The easel in our room gets as much paint on it as the kids get on the paper.

Our once a month POTLUCK lunch at work!

Best cookies EVER!

Sunsets that look like this...

Toes that look like this...

This day...

The closeness and cuteness of her feet...


This cute kitty cat....

What are few of your favorite things? Holla back (comment me).


  1. I want those cookies to be my new favorite thing! How about sharing that recipe...

  2. Here goes....

    2/3 cup shortening
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 egg
    4 tsp milk
    2 cups flour
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt

    Cream shortening, sugar, and vanilla. Add egg and milk; beat till light and fluffy. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Blend dry ingredients with creamed mixture. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.

    On a lightly floured surface roll to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut in desired shapes with cookie cutters. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet at 375 for about 8 minutes.

    If you prefer to make drop cookies rather than rolling out the dough, omit 1/2 cup flour and drop from a teaspoon onto a cookie sheet.

    I do not have a recipe for butter cream icing but I'm sure you can just google one. They're probably all about the same and all are extremely satisfying!
