    Gifts


    Some of you may or may not know that I hosted my In-Laws for a couple of weeks. And being the good hostess that I am, I never took one stinkin picture of any of the stuff we did. Yeah, I'm just cool like that. We did have a good time, though. We did lots of cool stuff. We did a "double dutch bus" tour of the City. Very interesting. We made pajama pants, and the poodle skirt. Charlie did laundry. Mountains of laundry. He even cleaned under my kids' beds. Seriously, that alone put me a good week ahead in the housework department.

    But Mom, being the sweetheart she is, knows the two things I love the most. Cookies and Roosters. So she gave us a "thank-you" rooster cookie jar. And she filled it up with home made chocolate chip cookies. Yummy! They lasted about 3 days, and my kids were begging for more. So I spent all day yesterday (okay, like an hour, but it seemed like all day) making more chocolate chip cookies. And refilling the jar. And I suspect they will last another 3 days.

    So thanks, Mom. That jar will be put to very good use.

    Dang Laura she beat me to it. Remember the "rooster" you gave me for my Birthday? I can't look at it without thinking of Sean. "Here have a cock"

    What a good mommy you are. Kids should always have homemade chocolate chip cookies. Maybe I should make some sometime...

    I love the Rooster!!

    Your doing good if the cookies would last 3 days. At my house try 3 hours. Well ok, maybe 1 whole day.

    I miss the Ghiradelli dream cookies! I tried them once, and failed miserably. Or that was just my excuse to eat the dough.

    That's the cutest cookie jar in the world.
    I hope I get one for Christmas. Whenever I make cookies I end up just leaving them on the counter and they get all stale.

    I have a friend who loves chicken/rooster stuff.

    She'd love your cookie jar.

    Do you know where it came from?

    (I like it too - and I have lots of chicken/rooster stuff, but I don't make cookies often enough to keep one filled. And if I bought cookies for it, I'd eat them!!)

    Ohh, Jeanette is the best. And can you send them both to my house now? Under my beds are filthy and we need cookies in a cookie jar.
