100 Second Cookies

I am hoping once basketball is over I can get back to posting regularly. This has been like having a second job! The last post I did was about our 100th day celebration. On this day, we made 100 Second Cookies that made approximately 100 cookies. Perfect for our celebration! These were very unique because they were made on the waffle maker.

By looking at them you would expect them to taste like waffles. Much to my surprise they tasted like sugar cookies.

The class had fun making these and remember.........

They only take 100 seconds to bake!

100 Second Cookies

1 1/2 cups soft butter
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
3 3/4 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 salt
Cream together the first four ingredients. Sift together the dry ingredients: then stir them into the creamed mixture. Drop about two teaspoons of batter onto each  side of a heated waffle iron and cook for 100 seconds.

I made it to the 100th day of school!

I figured since I had made it this far, the class and I needed to celebrate!

Here are a few of the things we did for Our 100th Day Celebration.

I gave each child a $100 (before you panic or think I am rich, checkout the picture below) and asked what they were going to do with it. I thought some of the answers were quite humorous. An activity like this reminds me of how they have no clue about the value of $100. Many of them thought they could buy a car with it. My child wrote this.....

If I had a $100, I would home (I am pretty sure she left out buy).

We counted out 10 snacks from 10 different stations so we would end up with 100 snacks to eat for snack time.

We read the book 100th Day Worries. It is about a little girl who worries about what 100 items she should  bring for the 100th day of school.

I sent home a bag the night before and told the class to fill it with 100 items.

The next day, they were to give clues about what item was in their bag.

Ella's clues:
1. It is rectangle......no correct guesses.
2. It is red.......no correct guesses.
3.  You use it to ride a ride at the fair or fall festival........everyone guessed it!

I allowed them to share so she gave everyone a ticket.

Next, we decorated my aid with 100 happy face stickers.

We also made a necklace with 100 fruit loops, made a picture using the number 100,

and made 100 second cookies.

Check back later on how we made these. The were unique and yummy!

Does anyone have the number for Proactiv?

Laney came in the other morning and said, "MOM! Look what just popped up!!!!!!"

 She then proceeded to tell me.......I need Proactiv!

Ever wonder what your husband would do if he didn't have responsibilities?

Mine would have his own action show!

The title of the show would be......

"The Weed is Everywhere!"

New Years Eve

For New Years, we went to SC to my sister in laws house. We spent the night shooting fireworks and sitting by the fire.

Oh and we watched Auburn play their best game all year!

Calloway Gardens

The day after Christmas we went to see the lights at Calloway Gardens. It was a lot fun but VERY COLD!

While we waited for the trolley, we stayed warm inside looking at all the holiday stuff.

Time to board the trolley.


They told us they start in September putting up all the lights. I can believe it. It was beautiful!

Its never too soon to think about Christmas this year!

Back in October I saw this idea and knew I wanted to do it for my parents from the grandkids for Christmas. I wanted to tell you about it sooner put that would have spoiled the surprise.

The kids call my dad POP. I placed the kids to spell it out and took a picture.

I did the same for NANA!

I did not realize how hard it would be to find a nice 4 picture frame. I had to get 4 individual ones instead. Now if your kids call the grandparents grandmother or grandpapa, it may be a little harder to pull this off. You could always take the kids and spell out dad for their father on Father's Day or do one for yourself!
