-32 degrees and no place to go.....

Today the boys had no school due to adverse weather conditions. Planning ahead I went to the grocery store yesterday and bought supplies to make cookies. The kids were excited because lately the only cookies I seem to have time for is bake-n-brake. Everyone helped, even June. We made the famous Neiman Marcus cookie and a cranberry white chocolate. The only problem is we made both types of cookies today...I fear that school may be closed again tomorrow and I am out of cookie supplies. Perhaps the boys would like to clean closets and do laundry! On a cookie note, I have been making what I thought was the "Neiman Marcus" cookie for years, it is our family favorite. However, today when I started to look for the recipe to post I found out the recipe I use is not the true NM recipe. The true Neiman Marcus recipe can be found on their website. The one I make is the one urban legends are made of. Urban legend or not it is a great cookie!

I just liked this one of June. Yes, she is wearing a onsie again. June has decided to take her clothes off any time she feels like it....I have a feeling there will be a lot of pictures in onsies until she starts a new phase!
Let's hope it warms up by school tomorrow.....otherwise I fear a 5 day weekend, thats a lot of cookies!
