if you give a mouse a cookie...

This afternoon's activities were inspired by one of Owen's new books: Mouse Cookies & More, a Treasury by Laura Numeroff, which includes four of her books, recipes, sheet music, games, and a cd. First, we read "If You Give a Mouse A Cookie", then listened to the story on the cd, and finally began baking! Aprons on, ingredients assembled, hands washed, and we're ready to make Mom's Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies.

First comes measuring and stirring:

And, just like Mouse, Owen asked for a glass of milk to go with his cookie. Mmmm...were they good!
