Motherly Visit

We made pepper jelly
& Molasses cookies
My mom made the most delicious peppermint brownies too.

This week my mom came to visit Tyler and I.
It was so nice to have her in town.
We were sad to see her go.
While she was here we did lots and lots of shopping
and baking.
It is was so wonderful to spend some time with just my mom.
I love you mom.
