It was a lazy sort of morning since we didn't go out for a walk much to Lucy's dismay and instead dragged out the colouring books, read stories, watched shows on Netflix and I did some knitting while Jack puttered around playing cars/trains.
|Stirring the seeds for making Bird Cookies! (if you think he looks older in that picture you're right. I cut his hair this week and he now looks like a little boy and there is no more baby left in him!!)|
|Searching for the dog bone cookie cutters, his favourite. We may need to bake some dog treats for Lucy soon!|
Makes 8 cookie cutters full
3 cups of birdseed
4 Tbsp flour
8 Tbsp Water
Lets Make it!
Combine your flour and water together and mix it up to a paste. Add to your birdseed and stir stir stir until all the seeds are wet. Lay out your cookie cutters on parchment paper on a cookie sheet and spray with oil to insure they come free once baked. Next spoon the seed mix into your cookie cutters and press firmly so that it is packed and not loose seed. Leave the cutters around the seeds to bake. (Its such a low temp the straws don't even melt so no worries there about plastic cutters)
|Mixing up the flour/water goop. He declined on helping stir once it was added to the seeds, "Too Gross Mommy".|
He chose all the cookie cutters for our little "bird cookies" and like a true proud baker he gave the bowl a big sniff and said "Yummmmmmmm" even though I don't think either of us enjoyed the smell haha. And to add to that they smelled worse baking.
|Jack worked on "making Momma a cup of coffee" while I filled the cookie cutters since it was too gross for him to touch. His choice not mine, but I enjoy that he is already practicing making me coffee :).|
|Not that you can see them, but they are there! You can see my footprints as I climbed up to freeze my fingers off tying them on!|
|Brrr. Brrrrr. Brrrrrr! Its too cold out for people or little beasties!|
