Shiny of the Week: Ending better than the Start

We have had a week of ups and downs. Monday we were still trying to recover from a stomach bug and the Mr. left for a two day business trip. Not the best day. But as the week progressed we got the house cleaned up, food back in the pantry, the Hubs came home and life started to feel nice and cozy again.  

By Wednesday the sun was shining and it was beautifully glorious to spend time outside in the cool air with the bright sun shine all around us!

Today (Friday), we are enjoying being HEALTHY, the snow outside, and the Christmas season by making cookies. Sugar cookies (recipe here) to be exact, with yummy colorful frosting (recipe here). We are still in the process of decorating and I think we will finish tonight around the kitchen table, as a complete unit.

 With the help of the two best little helpers around we made cookie dough, cut out our shapes and baked the cookies. We had lots of fun squishing dough, flattening it, using the spatula, learning to use our cookie cutters and of course EATING a cookie just to be sure we baked in lots of yumminess. 

What Christmas FUN!!

That's my Shiny ~
