Sugar cookies for lunch

Does anybody else do this, or is it just me?
We made sugar cookies Thursday morning and had way too much fun making them.

The boys were dying to have some hot and fresh out of the oven and it was straight up 11 am.

I caved.
I typically strive to teach my children good choices with food and we eat our healthy foods before "treats", but not today!

So while we were decorating the cookies with sprinkles of course they got everywhere.

I pulled out the vacuum to clean them up while the cookies baked.

I got carried away with vacuuming the boys clothes of flour and sprinkles and this is what happened...
I know I will regret one day that I put a vacuum to my kids head to make mohawks, but I haven't yet.
They loved letting the vacuum do their hair.

So I just had to share my fabulous parenting tips...cookies for lunch and vacuum mohawks.

Nothing makes for bigger giggles though. Oh, how I love my mommy job!

This is the rest of the week in pictures...enjoy!
Early morning couch cuddling...this is how we start most everyday!
My little meteorologists! This is the newest exhibit at the Science Museum and we love it! Seeing that the boys hardly watch the news, I thought it was funny how well Cooper did this! Look at that chubby hand out while he's talking...just like Rick Mitchell!

Getting ready for Winter Storm 2009, which ended up to be total hype, but that's okay! Look how big he looks.Sadie working hard to stand on her own. She's getting so strong! Sadie has started working on a sippie cup and the boys love helping. Just look at his face. Gosh it's amazing how much these little guys love their baby sister. Owen's teacher at school told me that every time Sadie cries in her room, Owen hears her and blurts out, "That's my baby crying!" Oh my heart! I adore these kids!

Having a cookie for lunch now and again never hurt anybody! I have no personal experience with vacuum mohawks, though! :-)

You are the funnest mom....want to adopt me?!!! I am still cracking up over the mohawks!!

Laura said...

Hooray for vacuum mohawks! I totally forgot about those, but I MUST carry on the tradition mom and dad gave us :)

We have TONS of snow here....it looks like Colorado! I'm sure it will all melt tomorrow since it will be in the 50s.

I wish I could have some of your cookies early in the morning....

Love yoU!

What fun times!!! They are a treasure! My 3-year-old now tries to vacuum up his toys and other random stuff with the vacuum attachment...this after spring cleaning. so fun!

What about putting the vaccume so close to your face, and hoping it doesn't suck your cheek in? What about that game? remember where you had to find the balance between just close enought and too close??? Crack up...good thing your homestudy is done, cookies for breakfast can break one of those!

Cara Canada said...

Oh Molly, I am laughing so hard at the vacuum mohawks that I have tears in my eyes!

Cookies for lunch is a good way to break the rules once and a while. I think we have done cookies for dinner!

Girl, you crack me up!

Love ya!
