Father's Day Dessert

When I saw this image on Pinterest, I just knew it was perfect for Father's Day. It combines my hubby's four favorite things into one!

Chocolate Chip Cookies


a dash of love,

and Brownies!

Anna Grace was a little disappointed with the lack of samples.

Then she got one and didn't care for it.

 Ready to go in the oven!

Bake at 350 degrees for an hour then top with...

and ice cream! Yummy!

Uh oh...


Wait... don't panic.

Those are window crayons! Aren't they wonderful? 

While Aaron was out of town for a few weeks, this was the easiest way to get a quick shower in while the girls were awake. Anna Grace loved them and clean up was a breeze!

Happy 4th!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend celebrating all of the things that make America a wonderful place to live! In honor of the occasion, Anna Grace and I made a flag to hang on the wall.

First we gathered our supplies. I always keep construction paper on hand and I remembered we had this great star punch! If not, you could use anything white like beans, pom poms, cotton balls, etc.

Then Anna Grace punched the stars out. This is great for their pincher grasp and prewriting skills.

I cut the big blue square and put the glue out and Anna Grace put all the stars in place.

Again, I cut the stripes and let her glue. Then with a few extra stripes I let her practice her scissor skills.

The finished product.

Ta Da!

Look at that pride!

Doesn't get much better than that! There are lots of crafts we could have done but since it was spur of the moment we just used what we had available and she couldn't be happier!
