Cookies, Hippos, & Mickey D's

Today was a fun day at home for the most part. I baked some chocolate chip cookies and let the kids decorate them with icing and Halloween sprinkles. They both had a ball doing that. HJ gets so into where each sprinkle should go. CJ doesn't care, she just wants to get it on as fast as she can so she can get to the eating. I don't know where HJ came from sometimes, as he took 1 bite and announced he was done as he does with most baked goods. CJ though, is a girl after my own heart. She ate all of her cookie up and wanted more! That is my girl!!!
We also have a new game at our house which is a hit. Hungry, Hungry, Hippos. Both kids love it, especially HJ. He has his father's competitive streak and is all out to win where CJ just thinks the whole thing is funny and is more concerned with making sure if she gets a ball it makes it to the little ball well before she goes for more balls. They are cute to watch and are amused for quite awhile playing it.
For dinner tonight, we met a dear friend of mine and her daughter Mara. Mara and HJ are 2 days apart and have been playing together since they were 3 months old. They had a ball eating chicken nuggets and playing on the fun playground and the fun video games. HJ especially loved playing the air hockey game there. I got to sit and talk to Jen while the kids were entertained with all the fun!
