Advent-Day 7

We were supposed to go to breakfast with Santa this morning, but there was too much snow and ice on the roads so I needed to come up with a special replacement activity for a very disappointed boy. We made these gluten-free sugar cookies (I used 2 cups of plain rice flour+ 1/2 tsp xanthan gum rather than 2 1/4 C of their blend) and, although they spread out a bit more than my usual sugar cookie recipe, they turned out awesome.

And in my-boy-is-the-sweetest-boy news Brady made me a “blessing bag” this morning while I lay on the couch (still fighting this stupid eye thing) containing one of his juice boxes, some fruit snacks, and several of his favorite toys. Then this afternoon he asked to make a “thankfulness hand” (which we do every day in November)
