saturday got off to a rough start with a 4am wake-up call from atticus (one of our two dogs). poor things decided he absolutely couldn't hold it anymore. it's times like those i wish i had a doggy door. i decided to make cookies for a get together i was attending later that evening. since i hate to bake, this was a huge feat. i found what appeared to be a yummy pumpkin chocolate chip recipe and started to bake.
how yummy do those look? well, with six cookies cooling in the pan, and the rest on the baking racks i went about my day. sometime while i was getting ready, atticus decided to help himself to a treat. and this is what i was left with...
so, the trick was on me. you win some and lose some i guess. i made it to the fiesta with six cookies and a great story.
the rest of the weekend was full of typical holiday activities...eating, crafting and spending time with friends. look at this amazing pumpkin my friend carved- isn't it lovely?
now with the holiday season in full swing, i'll have to give the cookies another shot. only after the dogs are outside.
