I could post about Thad's fractured arm.
Or how Astair spilled battery fluid in her eye.
I could mention that I think I broke my little toe.
Or bemoan the fact that we've all had colds...
But I think I'll skip those parts and share our favorite
Christmas Cookie Ornament Recipe
4 c. all purpose flour
1 c. salt
1 1/2 c. warm water
In a large bowl, mix the flour and salt. Then gradually stir in the warm water. Knead the dough until it's soft and pliable and roll it out on a floured surface until it's about 1/8 inch thick. Cut out with cookie cutters and place on cookie sheets. Don't forget to make a hole near the top of the ornaments (I used the end of a paint brush) so you can hang them later! Bake 'em at 325 degrees for about an hour. Once they've cooled, decorate them with paint, or glitter, or sequins. You may even want to paint them with varnish so they'll last forever.
*Disclaimer: My kids would like you to know these are not edible. And they are speaking from experience. Of course.
