Cookie Baking Day


Last night Molly,  my very best friend in the whole world stayed overnight.

When we got up this morning first we had breakfast, neither one of us is really a morning person so it was really nice to be able to sleep in today. 

Mom put out some of our favorites so we could choose what we wanted to eat this morning.

We all had a hard time choosing what to eat.

Molly thought those doughnuts looked really good.

I think I might go for an English muffin with some jam and butter.

Molly do you want some milk or juice to drink?

Milk sounds really good with a doughnut!

Michael, wait your turn!!!
 

After we got dressed we decided to bake some cookies. Here are some pictures we took as the day went by.
Molly what do you want to do today?

How about we bake some cookies?

That would be fun, and Valentine's Day is coming up so let's make some for that.

That sounds like fun. Maybe we should have a Valentine's party and invite our friends over tomorrow!

I am so happy to use our new aprons today!

I feel like a real chef with this apron on.

Me too.

We even have oven mitts to match our aprons.

You have to be careful not to roll the dough too thin

First batch ready for the oven.

I sure hope these turn out good.

There safely in the oven, now we just have to wait until they are baked.

Do you think they are done? The timer went off.

They look perfect!


Well, now that we have the second pan in the oven let's take a short break.

They do look really yummy!

How should we decorate them?

Michael, you stay away from our cookies! Those are for the party tomorrow!

Those came out so pretty

I can't wait until the party tomorrow to try them.

Contemporary Minis Collection- set #3 Reading is Fun-damental Collection

First, no you haven't missed the second set, I haven't gotten them done yet. Well, I have them started but I just haven't gotten finished yet. When I do you will see them.

I love set #3, it is probably my favorite of all the sets. You see it is all books! I love to read and I am sure my dolls do too so this is perfect. These books have titles you might recognize so they fit into a modern day scene easily. They have lots of pages just like a real book, although they are blank pages.

This kit went together really easily and quickly. Just remember to score the covers before you try to fold them.

I did find I needed to print extra pages of the pages,but I did just use regular printer paper for those and not the recommended slightly heavier weight paper. I felt the printer paper would look better and is definitely a better price ( you have 18 pages to print, some multiple times) to fill all these books. So be sure you have plenty of paper before you start.

Probably the most important thing to remember is to double check that you have your printer set up to print your pages with no borders. I found my printer didn't like to stay set up like it was supposed to so I had to check each time, I forgot a few times and got pages that didn't print correctly.

Like all of these kits this one is fun to make and will make staging scenes with my dolls for this blog a lot more fun. They would also add a lot to the imaginative play for kids playing with their dolls.
