Mica got his first bloody nose of the season yesterday. We had problems with this last year. Daddy said that Mica was crying, he went in his bedroom to check on him and there was a small pool of blood on the floor.
Daddy cleaned him up and we've been squirting a saline spray in his nose.
Mica had a book that is titled: Water, Water, Everywhere, now it's Isaak's. I have the book memorized because Mica LOVED to have it read to him. Isaak is not as into books at Mica was. This isn't good. One thing that is good is that Isaak could care less about TV, and Mica LOVED TV too!
I thought about this book when Daddy told me what happened yesterday in the kitchen.
Yes...yet another kitchen mishap!
Our refrigerator doesn't always work when it comes to the drinking water coming out of it. We got a refund for it a long time ago, but didn't have the heart to get a new one. Our refrigerator that we have works just fine, it's just the drinking water that won't come out sometimes. So...we kept it.
We fill up a 2 gallon container with filtered water from the hose under the refrigerator.
This process works just fine, but there has been a few times Daddy has forgotten about the hose running, and the container filled up past the maximum capacity and went all over the floor.
Yesterday was one of those days!
Daddy went to go get the mail while it was filling up, came inside and forgot about the water runnung.
Water was everywhere! Mica and cousin Evan were like, "Daddy, water is going all over the kitchen"! Daddy went in there and the hose was squirting everywhere.
Mica informed me that he wants to be Santa when he grows up.
He went on to say a bunch of stuff that made no since until the end, "I want to get Kaylee (a friend from preschool, not Kailey our niece) a pogo stick like she wants for Christmas. I want to go down her chimney and put it under her tree".
It's a good thing he's thinking of someone other than himself. Kids his age are all about themselves.
I wanted to make something that could be decorated, but was different from sugar cookies.
Overall I like them, but I have to admit they are a bit sticky when rolling them out. I sprayed my hand and the roller with flour spray. That seemed to help.
1 cup butter
2 cups white sugar
3 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
10 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
Cream butter or margarine and sugar until light and fluffy; add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Mix in the vanilla. Combine flour, cocoa powder and baking powder; add and mix well. Wrap dough in waxed paper and chill for 2 hours, or freeze for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Divide dough in half. Roll out each half to 1/4 inch thick. Cut with desired shaped cookie cutters. Place on lightly greased cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes.
