Cookie Monster

It's 10pm and I feel like making cookies 


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, and M&Ms. Drop by large spoonfuls onto un-greased pans.
3. Bake for about 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

We took a bath after all this.. 

What a beautiful mess. 

Things Learned: No tape necessary.  I thought tape would be a great add to our painted pumpkin.  Ideally it would give nice clean abstract lines, but my one year old was so good at taping I think we overwhelmed our pumpkin with tape. After we removed the tape, there was barely any paint left.  Note for next time- no tape. It looked beautiful and abstract without the tape. 


I decided that we need to add more color since all the tape had most of the paint.  We added pom poms and washi tape. I helped Noël B use a glue stick to attach the pom poms.
