Marliebear finally got to use her birthday gingerbread cookie kit from Mama Burkett!
It was lots of yummy fun & have I mentioned how fantastic it is to have a new oven that works!!??
After a little controversy over the prized pink floral apron, everyone got a turn rolling and cutting out the gingerbread men!
Even big brother was game for some cookie dough time ~
UNTIL he realized I was taking pictures lol
THANKS for the pretty face Ayden!!
We LAUGHED so hard.
I insisted he give me ONE sweet faced one ~ and he did.
Even though we used the same cookie cutter, we saw that gingerbread men come in all sizes…
Fat guy was my favorite -
But I KNEW, that this night wasn’t going to be complete without giving the gingerbread man what every gingerbread man needs…
YES, not complete without one!
And every mama who works in the kitchen all day should have a moment of play -
A moment of bliss -
A moment of remembrance
She just HAD to happen!!
Oh and that’s right gingerbread men – YOU BETTER RUN!!!
Busy week in the kitchen for Sadie lady, that’s for sure! I made new things, old favorites and STILL need to make more laundry soap!!
I had grapefruits to use up, so a gelatin was in order – Grapefruit Jella! (no brand naming in this house lol)
And I decided it was high time to commit to soaking the grains & flours we use…
Are you familiar with Weston A. Price??
Get on board!
Free Cookbook right here ~
I printed it out, read it twice and am a true potential devotee now… kinda.
But first, before we start doing things the RIGHT way – an apple pie needs to happen, because there is premade crust in the freezer. READY to go
and after I found a recipe that used maple syrup instead of devil made suger… Perfect! It’s what’s for dinner tonight!!
Hmmm, what else???
Well, I soaked nuts & made the best darn pancakes ever
on page 39 and started a turmeric bug… because… well because, why not!
I also made some coconut oil based chocolate coconut clusters – to prime the kids for sneaking in cod liver oil into them someday!
Well, that’s it! Let me know if you end up trying any of this crap, err, I mean delicious wholesome food stuffs

My lovie handed me a new iPhone this week & as I’m condensing my emails, I found this stash of goddess pics from over the years AND it occurs to me – I MISS MAKING GODDESSES!!!
A little reminiscing is about to happen…
The littlest bear has her heart set on a Valentine’s Day celebration!
And if it wasn’t for the littlest scariest one, the love day tote could’ve stayed snowed in the garage for another year BUT– her tantrums are worth avoiding.
And she did remind me last night before bed that I still needed to make valentines for everyone lol
A box of vintage valentines is always a good investment
Happy Love Day ya’ll!!
Yes, it’s Friday. Sure, it’s love day. Just make a newspaper basket already…
It’s cheaper than therapy!!
I’m not suggesting that you’re crazy but — if it is love day and you are here watching a video on how to make a basket from newspaper…
hee hee, now Go grab a stack of newspapers dear
Got construction paper, scissors and glue and a little bear who’s harassing you to making Valentine’s Day crafts?
