This is why we did not have school last Friday. If you’re from the north I know that you are laughing, but 1/2 inch or more of this white stuff will shut us down for quite sometime. We head to the grocery store for bread and milk and whatever else is needed for being snowbound. It was beautiful while it lasted which was for exactly twenty-four hours. Just long enough for school to be called off for yet another day.
On Wednesday before the snow I demonstrated this to my class. With much enthusiasm on Thursday the classes baked their cookies to decorate on Friday. I heard them planning their strategy and who they were delivering their cookies to for Valentine’s Day. It would be their boyfriend, girlfriend, favorite teacher, or take them home to let their parents enjoy. But it did not happen on Friday! Then came our three-day winter break. Decorating Disappointment!!!
This is what I heard on Thursday .
I can’t believe we didn’t come to school on Friday!
I wanted to be in school so badly.
I was so looking forward to decorating the cookies.
It was a bummer we weren’t in school!
This was the one day that I wanted to come to school.
I thought it was quite funny hearing the students making these kinds of comments that typically would not come out of their mouths if I paid them . But anyway, we did get the cookies decorated and some of them wrapped them up , tied bows, and delivered them to some very special people. I want to give a special thanks to Mark Mason at Kroger for donating 12 packages of Pillsbury cookie dough along with 6 large bags of Kroger powdered sugar for us to enjoy. Thank you for your generous contribution. And Danielle if you read this put the address of the Kroger in your comment. Your teacher left the paper with the address on her desk. Irresponsible teacher!
Here are the Decorated Cookies for you to vote on for this week’s winner. While you perusing check out the winners here from the last top chef contest.
