My kids will be so excited to find these confetti sugar cookies in their lunch boxes this week! I used my family’s favorite sugar cookie recipe and added some fun color by stirring in sprinkles! These could almost pass as birthday cookies they are so festive!

It’s that time of year again. August silently came to an end. Summer is over and the kids are going back to school. I decided to try out some new easy snack recipes for the new school year. Do you think they’ll like them?

I’m thinking I could switch these up a bit depending on the holiday season. The Bulk Barn store carries cool shaped holiday sprinkles that I’m sure will work beautifully with this easy cookie recipe. I’m going to make these cookies for the kids at school for Halloween by adding those cute little bat sprinkles to the cookies!

It’s sad to see another summer come to an end so quickly. Our family made many wonderful memories this past summer. We enjoyed our week on the lake at the cottage, our many trips to Toronto, exploring Barrie Hill Farm and snacking on fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. Strawberry picking at the farm. BBQ’s in the backyard. Campfires. *sigh*

While talking to my girlfriend about my melancholy over school starting and summer ending, I talked about all the things I never managed to get around to. She told me I was being too hard on myself and asked me what I did manage to do over the summer. So I made a list. (of course I did, right?) And let me tell you, the list was LONG. My girlfriend had a point. I was so focused on the stuff I didn’t do, I didn’t stop to appreciate all the wonderful things I did do. Uh. Imagine that.

It also got me to thinking, I am so focused on next summer and all the fun things I want to do (see a trend?) that I completely skipped the 9 months in between now and next summer. I can fit a lot of fun adventures in my life in the next 9 months.

So on that note, I’m going to eat one of these fun confetti sugar cookies, before my kids eat them all on me and make a list of fun things I plan to do over the next 9 months.
