What happens to the cookie jar when the kids leave home?


It becomes a great holder of the cookie cutters!

Great!!! I still have two of my six at home...but adjusting to the first four being out of the nest is still a daily experience...I love this...it gives me courage to continue to go forward with life's changes!!!

That's funny. Right behind me sits my cookie jar empty of cookies too but full to the brim with cookie cutters too! :) Kids are also grown! :) Sarah!

Yup. Those jars work for so many things. I have my cookie cutters in an antique jar, but I have too many cookie cutters and must weed some out. It looks great!

What a clever idea! Mine are taking up space in a drawer...so, not any more! They have a new home! Into the cookie jar, they go!

But Brenda what about hubby? My nest is empty but Precious Husband just loves to be drawn into the kitchen by the smell of cookies baking.

Blessings and hugs from Arizona,

You can use the cookie cutters again at Thanksgiving and Xmas:)

Oh my goodness that looks so much like my jar of cookie cutters. Have you been to my house with your camera?

Ahh! - But won't you need the jar for grandchildren? ~ We have a good friend who's youngest is leaving to University. This is their last child at home, and no more to come; til their eldest has a child. Then comes the blissful moments with grandchildren!!

It's great loss to your household. But - let's hope for the best! For him, and you!

Lots of Love in Christ,

Acacia
P.S. At the moment our cookie jars are full...and they empty quite QUICKLY!! With hungry kiddos, and two growing boys in there, who knows what will happen! ;)

Very cute!

I'll still have Savanna home this year since she'll commute to college in Atlanta (she got her license last week!!!). So my cookie jar get's to stay filled for one more year.

Our old cookie jar still sees a lot of action from our 9 grandkids. :-)
