12.12.07 : : Cookie Baking and Picture Taking

Today I took a rare afternoon off and spent some time baking Christmas cookies with my mom. We baked, listened to Christmas music and spent time walking around my parents' acerage with our cameras in between baking batches of fresh cookies. It was as fabulous an afternoon as it sounds.
I don't remember which type of bird this was
This is a woodpecker!
Same woodpecker

I believe this is a finch? Mom?
A wasp's nest

And then there was the baking!
The baking was highly successful, which was encouraging since I don't often bake. I would encourage each and every one of you to try this recipe if you are in the mood for something fabulous.
The dough...yum!
My mom's specialty: Molasses Thumb Print Cookies

Work is great when you love it - an afternoon spent baking and playing with Mom is even better!!

We get those pretty little wood peckers at our bird feeder. I love them!
