I've had lots of people ask me...

What my blog title "A Cookie In Each Hand, and other family quirks" means.

Well, my family loves cookies.

A lot.

Especially my husband and son. They give the term
Cookie Monster a new meaning.

It is a regular
occurrence in our household to have a hot pan of cookies devoured in exactly 2.3845 seconds.

Seriously.

My husband once read on a drinking mug of his uncles that said, "Happiness is a cookie in each hand". He came to conclude that it meant that not only do you have a cookie for now, but also one for later. And so, since then, he has adopted that as his motto for life and regularly shares it when there are cookies around.

And Porter is more than happy to oblige.

Here is Bill, Porter and our good friend Stephanie enjoying the latest batch of cookies:






And let me just tell you.......



That having a cookie in each hand can make you kind of,



Ummmm....










A little bit quirky. :)

I can hear Porter's giggle. Porter's giggle has always made my ears happy.

You are a great writer. Trevor even says so. By the way..a cookie in each hand only works if you can bake like you do. In my house...eeks, that would be a heartache.
