Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Sugar Cookies
School snow days kept us home from school yesterday & today. No snow, but rumored ice around the county. No snowmen, snowball fights or snow angels for us. But we did make the yummiest sugar cookies. The recipe from Stephanie was super easy and we used a set of transportation cookie cutters that my mom gave us last year. We had a blast making, eating and giving away the goodies.

· 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
· 1 teaspoon baking soda
· 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
· 1 cup butter, softened
· 1 1/2 cups white sugar
· 1 egg
· 1+ teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.

Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets. OR refrigerate for 30 minutes, then roll dough to make cut-outs.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

You could have an indoor snow fight. Built forts with blankets, pillows and furniture. Then use wadded socks as snowballs!
