Road Trip Preparation

   My pups and I spent the day getting prepared for our road trip home. Running a few errands in the morning and then coming home to tell Bolo that he needs a B-A-T-H! He looks at me with those crooked eyes like he knows what I am saying. Hes a good boy with it tho. Sheba barked the whole time Bolo was in his bath. Its like she didn't know where we were. I told Bolo to stay while I went over to her to make her stop. Lets just say there was a soapy dog was standing on the tile when I got back, and she still didn't stop the barking.

This picture was a accident but I thought it was kinda cute.

    Finally, Shebas turn and she always handles it well. Usually she just sits down because shes tired of standing.  She needed the bath the most. With all her allergies she has she gets so itchy that I'm sure she is feeling much better now.  It would sure be a lot easier if I had a hose that was off of the shower head. Turning on the shower to rinse them off gives me a bath too. I though baths were suppose to be relaxing? They also had their ears cleaned and toenails trimmed. Very good puppy's!
    I decided to make some deserts for out trip home. I really wont be-able to make anything when we get there because we are going to be arriving so late and the next morning is Christmas Eve with Mikes family. I saw cookies that I wanted to try on my favorite website (pintrest) so I decided to make those and the Raspberry Cheesecake Bits that I had made before. They were such a big hit that I at least know that they are going to be good. So I had written down the recipe for these cookies awhile ago and never fails, I lost it. So I looked up online Pin Wheel Cookies. There was a recipe that I found but it just wasn't the same one.  Not thinking it was to different I decided to make it. Everything went  fine so I put it in the fridge to chill overnight. Searching through some papers a little bit later of course, I can across the recipe from pintrest, and boy did it look a lot different. So i decided to make both recipes and see which was better. I had trouble getting the sprinkles to stick to the outside of the cookie log. So I didn't put them on. The pictures you see that inspires you always look so much better!
These are the ugly version of the picture recipe.  And once again I don't like how they taste. I think I am going to see if Mike wants to bring any to class tomorrow because the guys will eat anything. Other then that I just might pitch them. Its almost like they aren't sweet enough.  To bad I made 4 batches of them!
   Tonight I help Mike study for his test. I just hope he does well so he doesn't have to to think about it on his vacation. Tomorrow is just the basic stuff that I need to do to get ready to go. Clean, laundry, pack. I have a long list of things that I cant forget. I just wish we would have not gone grocery shopping this past weekend. We bought way to much stuff that now we will have to pack with us.
I'm so excited!
