Hearts Knit Together was born out of my struggle to
balance my desire to create with my busy life as a working mother of
four. I am challenging myself to do something creative WITH my children
each week and to share that adventure with you on Mondays. I invite you
to share your creativity with your children so that we might inspire
each other with ideas to help "knit our hearts together."
you want to join me, write a blog post about something creative you did
with kids and share your link in the comments. No rules really, only
that your link is current and something about creating with children.
They don't even have to be your own kids. Please remember to link back
to The Gauge Wars so that others who may want to join can find it.
Pretty simple. Your post can be from any day of the week. It doesn't
have to be Monday. Thank you for participating!
My husband is a wonderful cook. It is a HUGE blessing in our family that he enjoys and is good at cooking. I'd love to pass that blessing on to my future daughter-in-laws. Though right now I don't really want to think about them because these handsome boys are all mine! They think I am beautiful and want only to share their kisses with me! (I am going to try really hard not to be envious of their future wives....it will be hard to let them go.)
Anyway enough about what a horrible mother-in-law I'll be. We have had an abundance of peaches this fall thanks to the generosity of my aunt who has an orchard. I found this recipe for Peach Cookies
and wanted to try it. So the boys and I made a batch as a birthday gift for my sister-in-law. I think they were amazing. So moist and delicious. I thought the boys would eat them since they helped make them but no. None of my children liked them. "Ewww you can see the peaches!" Of course when I was just about to eat the last cookie all of a sudden everyone wanted it. I ate it all myself. (see note above about being a horrible mother.)
But the boys are loving being creative with me in the kitchen. They love mixing and pouring and getting messy. Having children help in the kitchen has totally paid off now. My oldest made cookies all by herself yesterday to take to our neighbors as our neighborhood is participating in the "Been Booed"
activity this season. When we went to anonymously drop the cookies off last night Adelle was terrified to go to the door because they had a man sitting on the porch and it was unclear whether he was real or not. Finally she got the courage and found that he had a green face and in place of his arm was a bloody stump. Gross. People here love to put disgusting and scary Halloween decorations out. It was like that 10 years ago when we lived here too. I will never understand that. But I am a pretty scaredy cat like my daughter....
