After my daughter had a run-in with the stomach bug, we decided to take the following day off to recuperate, which meant she would have to miss her school Easter party. She was heartbroken. So I decided to bring the party to her and do a few of her favorite things. We played on the swing set, fed the ducks, and then made cookies.
In this house, dessert makes any day better! I’m a fan of cake batter cookies, so I of course have several boxes sitting around waiting to be used in the cabinet. Ella goes for the funfetti mix every time. This is one of my favorites, so I don’t mind. It’s super easy and yummy. Got to love simplicity! I found the recipe here.
We gathered all of the supplies and got to work. We wanted to have them ready by the time daddy made it home. Ella loves to help in the kitchen. She turns baking, one of my passions, into bonding. These are the moments I cherish, and I hope when she gets older, she will do the same.
Afterwards, Ella and I decided to take cookies to our neighbor, keeping a few for ourselves of course. It makes my heart happy that she’s learning to share and be kind to others. She was so happy to hand them over to Mr. Chuck, our neighbor, even if it meant there were less cookies for herself.
