Cookies on Friday

For Christmas I gave Camille, Maren and Robin a gift of cookies after school on Fridays. Today was the second Friday of the year, and so I baked them some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  Yum!

IMG_1042Camille and Maren were also excited, although Camille had made a huge oatmeal cookie in her cooking class at school.  So she was appreciative, but shared hers with me today!

This is a fun gift to us all, it turns out — cookies every Friday afternoon, warm from the oven.  A time to talk and share some sweetness.

I love to be organized, but hate to fill up my calendar.  But I have a feeling that having a set day of the week for this gift will make it much more likely to happen.  There is some truth to this statement: calendared events tend to happen.  I hope cookies after school on Friday becomes a weekly tradition! I am ready for the weekend.
