Last night, after Little Bird was in bed, I started making my first batch of Christmas cookies. There was a cookie exchange for my woman's circle at the church this morning, and I was supposed to bring 10 dozen cookies.

Best laid plans, right?

I went to get started, opened the fridge and found that I only had one stick of butter. I needed five. My dear, sweet, wonderful husband changed out of his pajama pants and went to the store at 8:30 at night.

By 11:00, I was finally finishing up baking the cookies. I still had to turn them into oh so delicious little double doozies with my frosting, and roll them in my crushed candy canes, but I went to bed instead. Figured I could do that part in the morning.

This morning, Bird woke up with 101.4 fever. That meant no school for him, no cookie exchange for me, and a trip to the doctor.

I can't decide if I'm upset by the 120 chewy chocolate double doozies on my counter or thrilled to death. A little of both, I believe.

Cookies, anyone?

We've been grounded with fever this week too. Not too bad ... just enough to keep us out of preschool. :-(

Hope you and Little Bird are doing better now! ----- COMMENT: AUTHOR:Anonymous Andrea DATE:Thursday, December 10, 2009 at 12:35:00 PM EST Thrilled to death would have been my first reaction. *heh* Enjoy those cookies! :-) Hope your little guy feels better soon.
