I picked this big boy up from school this afternoon, and when he stepped out the door of his school, I almost didn't recognize him.
For one, he was in his war paint.
Second, he's growing like a weed!
We went to the grocery after school, and he was very attentive to the items on the shelves.
Always curious and asking questions, that boy.
He asks "why" a lot. I remember being that way-still am, I guess.
According to Gretchen Rueben's book profiling personality types, I'm a questioner.
Ha! Who knew?
And apparently Clay is too.
He's gone home with his momma now, and my thoughts have turned to which cookies I want to bake for the holidays this year.
Why? I have no idea why I'm wondering that already, when I haven't bought the first gift, card, or hung the first bough-or bow.
But I'm thinking I want to make gumdrop cookies this year.
Why? Because I ate some once, years ago, and I've been craving them ever since.
Why? Because they were sweet and chewy. Gumdrops by themselves, I can do without. Gumdrops in a cookie, however, taste pretty exotic.
So, I've been agooglin' to see what kind of gumdrop recipes there are out there, and I came across one featuring coconut, oatmeal, and gumdrops.
Now how could a gal go wrong with a recipe like that?
Maybe I'll report back later on how they taste. I'll bet Oaklee would help me test them.
Why? Because she loves sweets even more than I do.
