Booger Cookies

I try to write mostly about home schooling, but I can’t help but put personal family things on here every now and then (okay, more than every now and then.) We had a fun vacation in California. Here are a few pictures.

On the drive to California we listened to a great book, Diary of a Fairy Godmother by Esme Raji Codell read by Rachael Lillis. It is a self discovery book about a young witch (only 100 years old) who finds out that she is best suited to be an “FG” (Fairy Godmother.) At the end of the book there is a recipe for Booger Cookies.

  1. Well in order to preserve his reputation as Safety Nerd I have to explain that at the beach Isabel was in the waves and Luke was mostly digging in the sand. Also, my brother explained to them that the metal pipe (on the other side of the motorcycle) was hot. Notice Luke’s right leg safely elevated and no where near the hot pipe.

  2. Hi.I am 8 years old and live in Iowa. I just want to thank you for posting a picture of these cookies because I read this book and wanted to see what they looked like.
