Cookie Baking Night 08/24/15

Tonight was Cookie Baking Night. In attendance: Emily, Ethan, Carissa, Alli, and Rylar (and a few other special guests joined us for supper). Tonight was Alli's birthday choice (she recently turned 5 years old). As is our usual custom here at "Cookie Baking Nights", the birthday girl/boy gets to decide what we have for supper and what we make for our cookie that evening. For supper Alli chose macaroni and cheese, french fries, strawberries, and blueberry smoothies to drink. For her cookie, she chose the "butterfly cookie".

My mom and dad and Diana (Ethan and Carissa's mom/Greg's sister) joined us for supper this evening. We had 10 around our dining room table tonight. It was also a joy to have Greg around the table this evening as he returned from his 2-1/2 week trip to Iowa just moments (literally) before we started gathering around the table.
