It’s a Jammie Day!

That’s right, it’s jammie day at the Watkins’ house.  This is what we call it when we go the entire day in our pajamas (Well, the kids do at least.  It is a little after 2, and I do have clothes on now, much to Charlie’s disappointment!).  Charlie and Maddie love jammie days, and want every day to be jammie day, so they were really excited when I agreed to skip story time today and have a jammie day.

And it really is a great day for a jammie day, with it being so cold outside.

What do you do on a jammie day, you ask?

Lots of playing!  The kids have played with stickers, Legos, their doctor kit, and have dressed up in lots of superhero outfits.

We've read lots of books.

And we made these wonderful strawberry cookies!

We have tons of strawberries from my  mom’s recent trip to Florida.  These cookies are so good, so here’s the recipe if you want to try it out.  Don’t make them too far ahead of time, though-they are best when they are fresh.

Strawberry Cookies

1 stick butter, softened

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar and 2 tbs white sugar

1/ 2 tsp vanilla

1 egg

1 1/4 cup self-rising flour

1 cup strawberries, cut up

1. Mix your strawberries with the 2 tbs. sugar and set aside

2. Mix the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together.

3.  Add the vanilla and egg and mix well.

4.  Add the flour and mix well.

5.  Gently stir in the strawberries.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for a13-15 minutes until brown.  This makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Do you and your kids ever have a jammie day?  What do you like to do on a day like this?

    With the snow forecast today, my kids are home all afternoon — and probably tomorrow and Thursday too. We are going to try this recipe with frozen blackberries… the Florida strawberry fairy didn’t make it to my house!

    LOVE your first photo of the kids at the table. Adorable!

    SInce school is closing early today, we might try this recipe this afternoon. I’ll be using frozen blackberries though, since I don’t have a strawberry fairy in Florida. 🙂

      Karen, I am sure they will be really good with blackberries! I might try that, myself! Enjoy the snow!
