I feel like the day got away from me, today.
PDaddy and P3 made snickerdoodles. Essentially, it's a sugar cookie that you roll in a bowl full of sugar and cinnamon.
All the credit for these goes to PDaddy - they're his favorite and he makes them so well that I feel absolutely no guilt for saying, "Ok. You do it!" LOL
This is what they look like when they've been baked.
BUT, my big excitement for the day was the joint, early present Pdaddy and I gave ourselves. Backstory: When we got married, I suddenly inherited two sets of china. Now, I'm not one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but...neither pattern was my style. One was 100 years old with beautiful, hand painted flowers and silver edging. The other was 90 years old, with a pine bough and pine cone pattern. Because I was too big of a wuss to hurt grandma's feelings (and mom's feelings), I decided we just wouldn't register for china. I have both sets, but I rarely ever use it. I figure I'll give a set each to the girls. Well, for our wedding, we registered for some nice flatware. But, I've always been kind of bummed that we didn't have "our china". Over the years, our flatware has slowly been broken, chipped, and faded from daily use. And, then....I found it. I found my china. And, joy of joys, PDaddy loved it, too. It's childish and kind of whimsical, but...it's mine now.
I'm telling myself that the cost should be aggragated over the years we've been married and the years to come. LOL I can't wait to see the look on my MIL's face when she sees this. I jokingly told her I was going to get Disney china at our wedding. If I'd only known.... in reality, she's probably forgotten that conversation (since our wedding was quickly followed by two other weddings in the family).
Unfortunately, I only got three of the ten settings. And, my "holiday sets" won't be here until after Christmas. Booo! Oh well. Next year. Good thing I'm not hosting this year.
