we all gathered into the kitchen to bake some cookies
we washed our hands
we wiped our noses with our hands
we were sent away to wash our hands again (about ten times)
we mixed and rolled
we baked
we decided the cookies were lame
we added more flour and chocolate chips
we were satisfied with the final product
we wrapped up the cookies
we tied them to some of our favorite Spanish tunes
we wrote "thank you for being good neighbors" notes
we made original art on the notes
we attached them to the cookies and tunes
we delivered them to our neighbors
we prayed that they would feel the love
you know, the divine love.
it's so good.

Yes, this is good, all of it; I especially like the way you wrapped up the little packages, and of course the boys' creative additions.

I love this idea...I think I might try it with my kids, if you don't mind. I am looking for ways to open the door to speak with my neighbors...especially one of my neighbors that has started a home business called "Pure Romance"... which is not so pure if you know what I mean. Good stuff Naomi! Keep it coming!
