Sprinkles and Sparkles

Thursday, December 2nd, 2010

My friends, yesterday I disappeared into a vortex.  I didn’t do all the things I ordinarily do.  I didn’t check my email, I didn’t start my morning by sipping coffee and reading my favorite blogs.  I didn’t login to Facebook, and I didn’t even tweet.  I’m not sure I even showered. 

Where was I all this time, pray tell?  I was busy refereeing a Cookie Decorating Party with 20 kids in my house, all under 7 years of age.  There was frosting and sprinkles, followed by sugar highs and 40 muddy feet running up and down, in and out, all around the borders of our property.   It’s fair to say it was Christmas Cookie Carnage.

Why would I subject myself to such an insanely crazy delightful experience?  My middle daughter begged me to host the event.  I caved.  It’s that simple. 

My day began here.
