Let's Celebrate!

I brought Bella into Boston last week for a re-check with the surgeon who did her ankle surgery. She and I were so happy when he told us she was 100% recovered.

 I baked him a special package of my celebration cookies as a thank you because he's given her such good care since we first met him last December. He seemed to really appreciate our gesture and told us he and his resident intern would enjoy eating them later that day.

The kids are on Spring Break this week and I wanted Sophia to have a fun way to kick off her break. Last Friday she invited a good friend over to play and have dinner. I baked more cookies and helped them make home made ice cream sandwiches. They were delicious. We took some candy she had left over in her Easter basket and chopped it fine then they dipped the ice cream in the candy as a sweet mix-in before smoothing in between the cookies.

 I love that simply having a friend over to make home made ice cream sandwiches with and getting time to hang out around the house to laugh and play with her friend is the kind of fun she enjoys most.
