One Creative Weekend #12

Welcome to the fastest One Creative Weekend post ever!  It’s 11:55, and I have the timer set to get my last batch of cookies out of the oven in 10 minutes.  We’ll see if I make it!

It’s been a crazy day.  In addition to dinner, a meeting, gymnastics and homework help, Bear and I made the fastest Aztec costume ever (for a school project tomorrow), and I made my first batch of gluten-free pumpkin chocolate chip cookies for a tasting party in Boo’s class tomorrow.  If you think trying a new recipe with ingredients you are not used to using while helping a child finish a report is easy–think again!

I just have one thing to say after this crazy evening:

Mom.  I’m sorry for all of the times that I waited until the last minute to ask you for help with a project, and I’m extremely grateful for the late nights you spent with me completing those projects!  Now that I have my own kids . . . I guess it’s payback time.

Needless to say, I will not be sharing features today.  I will, however, be sharing features on my facebook page all next week.  If you aren’t a follower already, be sure to like my page so that you don’t miss anything.

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week:
