molasses...

i was missing molasses!
uh... i don't think you can make GOOD gingerbread cookies without it!
So... i switched from making cookies to doing a bit of wrapping!

All i know... it is CRUNCH time...
BIG... organic... coconut... granola kind!
No going back now!

I've dropped off one girly...
the other girly & i went to get the MOLASSES 
and grab a latte & hot cocoa to go... of course...
the roads were BRIGHT WHITE... fresh snow is FALLING from the sky!

WE will be hunkered down INSIDE today... baking those cookies...
and tackling the gazillion other things that are wanting attention too! 

Here's to a hairy wild day... YES... you know it WILL be...
i will admit... i have already flipped my lid once...
BREATHE...
focus on the REASON... everything else is just FLUFF!

Loving the paper! Can I come over for a cookie... a good cookie is just what I need. I wont share with the kids though, if they get 1 more piece of candy from school I am going to scream. Just what they don't need with all their energy!
have a cozy evening!!!
LuLu (no snow here, unless you count snow paper in the kids room they wanted to add to their tree) :o)
