Ducks in a Row

The kids have gotten into play dough lately again. I made some fresh yesterday, since the old stuff was getting kind of weird. I made some little ducks for Miles and Kaylee thought they were the coolest. She immediately started playing out the "Little Quack" book that we have about five little ducklings. And got mad at Miles when he wanted to squish her ducks.

Then today was made sugar cookies. The cut-out kind. I remember when I was a kid my mom would only let us make these kind of cookies once in a great while, which we thought was extremely unfair. Well, now I know why she wasn't crazy about it. Here's Miles after only 5 minutes of cookie cutting.

They had fun though. I lost count of how many finished cookies Kaylee ate. Luckily, they were small.

After the cookies were out of the oven, we switched to play dough again so Miles could use the cookie cutters. I wish I had a picture of his face when he tasted the "new cookies". Not exactly what he was expecting!


  1. Haha! I love that last photo...what's with Miles covering his eyes?! ;-)

  2. Actually, Miles is showing me his floury hands. They just happen to be in front of his eyes!
