Fun Weekend

My daughter and I had fun making Daddy cookies and a card for Father's Day yesterday. We made Banana Oatmeal Cookies. I'll post recipe at the bottom of this entry. We also made a card. I had her draw on a piece of white card stock. Now she is only 23 months old so it was colorful scribbling. Then I used my heart hole puncher and punched hearts out of this paper. Then I traced her hand and cut that out. I glued the hand to the inside of the card and glued the hearts on that. The inside said, " A 'hand full' of hearts for Daddy." We also made these for the grandpas.

ANDDDDDDD now completed tote! My mother-in-law walked me through the sewing tonight and we finished it. I really like it! I ended up using a different pattern. I do have to give credit for the pocket to my teacher. :) We were running late and had a tired baby who needed put to bed, so she put it in fast for me. I think it turned out pretty good for my first one. Sorry the pics aren't that great. I just wanted to get pics up.

Now for the cookie recipe....
Banana Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 c. sifted flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. shortening
1 egg, well beaten
1 c. mashed ripe bananas
1 3/4 c. oatmeal
1/2 c. chopped nuts

Into mixing bowl sift flour, sugar, soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Cut in shortening. Add remaining ingredients and beat until thoroughly blended. Drop by teaspoonfuls about 1 1/2 inches apart onto lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees about 15 minutes or until edges are brown. Remove immediately and cool. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen cookies.
