Life is a Tin of Cookies

While we took Thing2 trick-or-treating with his friends last night, Thing1 and his girlfriend helped her mom make Halloween cookies.  I didn’t know Halloween cookies were a thing until Thing1 waltzed in with a tin filled with the fruits of their labor.

So, even though I’m still trying to figure out where the time went between when I was carrying Thing1 around in a snuggli and this latest snip of the apron strings, there was surprisingly little angst last night ( It didn’t hurt that he suggested starting Thanksgiving Cookie tradition this year).

After all, if your kid’s dating a girl whose parents are determined to find new occasions to make cookies, you know she comes from a family with good values.
