Summer cookies

The wonderful ladies who keep our kids in the nursery during our weekly women's Bible Study gave us a FREE Mother's Day Out a few weeks ago!!!!  I have to admit, I was counting down the days until this wonderful day! 

I made some cookies for them to enjoy while they loved on our kids :)  I thought suns and flip flops were appropriate!  We appreciate y'all SO much!!!!

Popcorn cookies

Wednesday was my son's last day of Mother's Day Out.  I really feel like he just started!  Next year he'll be in Preschool.  So hard to believe!

I made some popcorn cookies for his teachers to go into a little gift basket.  I saw these cookies and thought they would be fun!

This is the movie night gift basket I made each teacher.  Here's where I got the idea.
I was in a hurry to take these pictures but it says, "Spiderman, Batman, pick one to see.  You are a SUPERHERO to me!"  When I saw this idea, I knew I really wanted to do it.  Our son, Caleb, overcame an eating issue this year and we are SO thankful!!!  When he started the school year, he was eating pureed baby food and drinking milk, and that's it.  He has been in speech and occupational therapy for a year and a half because he had a severe gag reflex and in January he finally started eating!  I knew that being around kids his own age and watching them eat and having teachers that were willing to work with him would make a huge difference and it did.  I know it got really messy for a while and we appreciate them so much!  Thank you Ms. Karen and Ms. Sally!!!!

Our Music Director at church asked me to make some cookies for his daughter's graduation party/piano recital.  She is going to Ouachita Baptist University next year so they wanted purple and gold.

Mother's Day Bouquet

Hope you all had a great Mother's Day!  We had a big weekend seeing family and dedicating our sweet baby girl!  Here are some cookies I made for my mom.  I made another one for my Mother-In-Law too. 

Here's a close-up of the bouquet.  I saw these cookies and wanted to try it!

Strawberry Shortcake cookies

My friend Jaimi asked me to make some cookies for her daughter's birthday party.  She did a Strawberry Shortcake theme. 

I just did some simple squares and then some little strawberries.

Happy birthday Jordan!!!

Giraffes and Elephants

I know I've not posted in a long time!  Both of my kids were sick for what seemed like forever.  And we've just been busy lately.  I'm going to try and catch up!

A few weeks ago I did some fun polka dot giraffes and elephants for a baby shower.

They were a lot of fun.  The invitation had lots of different patterns that I used as inspiration.

My friend Mary Avery asked me to do some Cars cookies for her son's birthday party on Saturday.  She had found these cookie cutters and I was so excited to make them!


It was so fun to do these!  

Sadly, we didn't get to go to the party.  My son woke up sick yesterday so we had to miss it.  I was so sad!

Happy birthday John Michael!!

Yay Hey, No Way!

Yo ho mateys away!  There'll be treasure and adventure today! 

Yes, I could type out the whole song to "Jake and the Neverland Pirates."  And if you have a Pre-schooler I'm sure you could too!  My son loves "Pirates" as he calls it.  I think it's kinda cute too, I like when Izzy says, "Yay hey, no way!" (Hence the title of the post).

On to the cookies... 

My friend Vonda asked me to make some pirate cookies for her son Brandon's birthday party.  I was so excited when she asked me because I had just found this tutorial on easy pirate cookies!  I love how simple they are but so cute!  If you haven't looked through Sweet Sugar Belle's blog, you need to!  She is amazing and gives great tutorials.  She has really good ones for beginners.  And I love how creative she is with cookie cutters, using them for different cookie designs.

And I saw her pirate ship cookies here.  For the black marks on the wood, I used an edible marker and I love the detail that adds.

Happy birthday Brandon!
