Summer is here!

My little Emily on holiday in Spain 2007

Yesterday was the first day of summer.
I LOVE summer.
Beautiful sunny days, green leafy trees, berries growing on bushes,
grassy meadows, happy kids playing outside, vacations.

You can imagine my disappointment when I opened the curtains and
was greeted by a grey, rainy, thundery morning.

Hmmm, not my idea of summer at all.
What to do on a day like that?
Why bake cookies of course.
These were so easy to make as they dough came ready made. All I had to do was roll balls, stick some chocolate on top and bake.

Dylan the cookie monster

I smeared some peanut butter on top my cookie...
Oh yes and it was heavenly!

While I am on the subject of cookies I have to show you these

We made these a few years back. Dylan was in his Ben 10 phase judging by the t-shirt
we made him. No idea why I was wearing see through pants and Simon was naked. Hahaha.

I just love making gingerbread people.
 Definitely something I'll be doing again soon.

Oh, and before I finish this post I want to say a huge thank you to
who awarded me the Versatile blogger award

Isn't she the sweetest.
I'll have fun passing this on next week.

Until then, have a fantastic weekend.
Send some sunshine my way OK.
