Snickerdoodle anyone?

Welll... the kids and I made these tonight!   I love snickerdoodles because not only are they delicious but the ingredients are always in  your cupboard! Well except cream of tartar.. we were out of that.. but a recipe online is almost identical to Better Homes and Gardens but doesn't have the cream of tartar, so we figured it could be done. (PLEASE NOTE:  I have had requests for the recipe- I will post it later but really all we did is use the recipe out of the Better Homes and Gardens cook book-the checkered one- just without the cream of tartar.) The house smelled of cinnamon for a while- it smelled like Christmas!  Hanna and I tried to keep David out of the kitchen as long as possible, because he's always sticking his fingers in things, etc.  But finally he did figure us out.. and he was pretty good-

although by the look on Hanna's face you see she was telling him to do something.  I can't remember what it was.
Please ignore the mess in the background, and our old ratty cabinets. We rent so we have no control over that! lol

And just when you thought my New Bern pics were finished- I remember I saved a few that mom took too.
Here are Hanna and I-

Ohh those cookies look delicious! I love when the house smells of cinnamon and I enjoy baking with my children also. It looks like they had a great time making snickerdoodles!
