Glam In the Snow

Talked my 'glam' model into going out in her favorite play dress and her late aunt's fur coat. {my poor mother-in-law refuses to have it in her house, but can't stand to give it up - it was her sister's pride and joy -we're all slightly creeped out by it and after the shoot it went back in its bag and back into the depths of the closet}

Valentines day... the test batch

DD#1 wants to take treat bags to school {providing they have it with the weather they're predicting} on Valentine's Day. She has a remarkably small 4th grade class - only 16 kids - so in addition to the kisses, I thought we'd put in a nice, big, heart cookie. Saw this recipe on one of my favorite ingredient source's website {King Arthur Flour, of course} and decided to try it. Sneaky mom, putting oats and white wheat flour in a cookie... but they're really good.

Chewy Oatmeal Decorating Cookies
Miss L has had at least 2 this morning {that she asked for... who knows how many she quietly slipped off the plate!}. The colored sugar adds just a big of extra sweetness. Royal icing would be too much.

They're kicking the kids out of school at 12:30 today, and canceling all after school activities... so we'll see what the weather brings. It's a whopping 11 degrees out right now, so the neat-o idea I had for an outside shoot will wait until it's warmer. {ya know, at least 30 or so haha}

Maybe I'll get out the speedlight and try out the new bracket/umbrella combo and see how that goes. Until later!!

I feel like I dropped off the planet for a week or so... maybe more! It was show time for the ICS Stepdancers. Both my dear girls danced this year... no sitting out {grumping} for L this year - she was on stage too! {and refused to leave at one point}

I'm up to my eyeballs in dancer photos, so here is a peek at the group shot of one of the classes at dress rehearsal.They all did a wonderful job. Great show! Now it's time to get ready for the St. Pat's day Parade.
