C c... is for cookies & cows?

This was one of our books today - all about noisy animals and a noisy barnyard, but our focus today is on COWS!

more cows and better yet - dancing cows

but cows can't really compete with cookies - even if they are being eaten by needy rodents

Today the plan was just to make the cows - Starla has a flour allergy but since she is still sick ;( - I felt it was safe to make some cookies.

...needy rodents 

oh wait! that's Elle sneaking in the colored cake mix cookie dough 

colored cake mix cookies

1 box of cake mix (any flavor)
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 egg

mix all ingredients (we added food coloring) and bake at 350' for 9 minutes.


Kimball licking the beater - yep it's good

Abbey tasting the batter 

Elle licking a beater 

putting in all the ingredients 

 Abbey not paying attention at all - but mixing none the same

 Abbey showing Kimball & Abbey how to mix the cookies

What kids don't love cookies? 

tasting - mmmmmmmm! 

Kimball doing a happy dance - cookies make me happy too 

Kimball eating his cookie - yum! 

painting time - we love to paint 

Abbey painting away

Elle & Abbey painting cow heads 

look at that face - I was reaching out to hold his plate still and I think he didn't want my help

I had to watch this little one closely, she tried to sneak a taste or two of brown paint
