fatman cookies.

Doug's mom came and spent a couple of too short days with us.
She lives a good 6+ hours away...but came all the way here to teach me how to make fattigman cookies...which are Doug's all time favorite cookie.
They are a Norwegian cookie...basically dough fried in hot crisco.
Easy enough to make...just a little time consuming.
Moses however, proved to be a dutiful baker.
He stayed to help almost the whole time we were baking, almost 2 hours.
We gave him his own bit of dough and he would mimic
all the steps that his grandma was doing.
As a result we have a few interestingly shaped
cookies but hopefully he made some sweet memories with his grandma.
You can tell he was serious by the tongue hanging out.
We had a great time...and were all so sad to see her go...
and Bop bop (grandpa) you were missed too!
Every time we would say that Grandma was coming he would say "and Bop bop?!"
And now Doug has a wife who knows how to make his favorite cookie. :)

A couple of "business things"...

FYI: I notified the winner of Novembers cupcake...it was Sarah who commented:

"Those are gorgeous, Crystal. You are so talented I want to throw up. =) Is there anything you aren't good at??" on THIS POST.

She made me laugh out loud. :)

And thank you, thank you, thank you for all of your kind words and emails.
I really am speechless...and to ALL those who emailed me...I am amazed at how many of the copycats you knew I was talking about without me EVER saying it to you...THAT alone tells me that I have nothing to worry about because they, their actions and their work speak for themselves. :)

I hope to write a more clear post about all that I was talking about soon...we have all been sick and my computer time has been super limited.

Thanks for YOU!

how fun! I made cookies with my kids a few weeks ago, and I have pictures of them in deep concentration with their tongues hanging out as well. :)
