Cookie Baking Night 09/15/14

Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance this evening: Ethan. I think this is the first time it has been just Ethan and me (and sporadic appearances from Uncle Greg).

We made raspberry oatmeal bars and chocolate caramel oatmeal bars (using this Strawberry Oatmeal Bar recipe and substituting the "strawberry" for flavors of our choice).









Ethan is quite the reader. The two of us spent about 25 minutes together on the couch reading our books side by side (definitely the first time that has happened in Cookie Baking history). 

For our Bible-focused time, we detoured from our regular book and read a couple chapters from "A Dangerous Journey, The Story of Pilgrim's Progress" Ethan seemed to enjoy it. When we finished reading, he said, "Whoa. There's a lot of symbolism in that book." (I was glad to see that didn't escape him, as the language of the book is "old English" in style--still kept his attention).



We ended the evening with a lively game of Phase 10. As usual, a fun time was had by all.
