Lemon Shortbread Love

Lemon Shortbread

Today Kyla and Sienna made Lemon Shortbread. These two are really into baking right now, and we wanted to use up some of the lemons nana gave us.

Kyla chopped the butter

While Sienna mixed the sugar, flour and lemon zest.
Sugar Goes bowl and mouth ;)

They needed my help to whip the butter and sugar.

Then some teamwork was required to mix it all together.
Hands on

Then the part they both liked the best, cutting out the shapes.

Eventually they were ready for the oven.

And before we knew it, ready for the tummies...

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
