My daughter and I did a first this afternoon. We made cookies. She started off so good. I got a new mixer and she added the ingredients very carefully. Then, she started to get exctited and dumped a whole jar of nutmeg in. Then a little extra flour. I never thought I wouldn't enjoy a sugar cookie! She had so much fun though and was very proud. I let her decorate them and she used a whole jar of colored sugar. Thankfully, most of it ended up on the floor and not in her mouth. She loved every minute and thought her cookies tasted good. I smiled and nodded.

This is my daughter's keen fashion sense.

Visit to the farm

Last Sunday we went to a local farm to feed some animals and take a hay ride. Addison of course had a great time. There were two llamas and if any of you have read the llama books then you understand how cute it was that Addison kept walking around calling them "llama drama." It was cracking us up.

Addison had a grand time this year. She was a fairy, although when she saw the wings she decided she was a butterfly. Whatever. We went out trick or treating and she said and was so cute. Mostly she was out to socialize, following other families and talking to everyone. She got candy though and spawled it out on the front porch when we got home. Then she got very excited when she realized there were M&Ms. The last picture is this morning when she got up, promptly put on her costume and wanted to go "twick and tweating." She wanted more treats! She is my daughter!
