When Dad's away...

Daddy went out for a while today, mixing geocaching with Xmas gift-giving in the nerdy way that only he can...and while he was out, Ben and Mommy were busy...

They went shopping for cookie supplies and then immersed themselves in the cookie-making process for hours of fun!

Ben liked mixing the dough up, especially when he got to "clean" the mixer-blades...


After
the mixing and such was complete, they decided to add some Christmas coloration to the cookies, so we ended up with some red and green cookies...which they arranged in a "tree", topped with a decorative tree that Ben made in school this week...


Once the cookie-making fun was complete (note huge pile of edible fun), they moved on to painting...


Warning: Art Shot Ahead!!! I thought that this was a pretty cool picture of the paper plate in which they mixed colors of paint to make such colors as "Gurple"...


It looks from the pictures as though they had a lot of fun, and I, for one, am very glad that they did it all in the order that they did...

I definitely think you should send the artistic plate with the gurple creations to Jim and have it hung at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, as it is without a doubt equal to many of the "fine" artistic pieces hanging there. Hey it might sell for enough to pay for Ben's college education!!!
