Cookie Review

Since I've directed folks to my blog to see examples of my cookies, I thought I'd post a "cookie review" so you wouldn't have to scroll though non cookie things. Some of these are early cookies and aren't even on my blog yet. So, here they are! This isn't all of them, but it will hopefully get you excited about coming to my cookie workshop! Now I'm not guaranteeing you will be able to be a cookie expert when you leave, but I hope to be able help you make awesome cookies without all of the mess and stress! And of course, your pack of diapers will go to help a very worthy ministry. If you're wondering what in the world I'm talking about, click here.

I'm going to show you how to do these dots!

I use cookies on cakes a lot. The train and the 1 are cookies.

We'll talk about cookies on a stick too!

These bunnies were iced in fondant!
more snowflakes. Love these!

Ladybug Cake and Olivia the Pig Cake

This ladybug cake was for my niece Sydney who turned 8 on the 31st! Happy Birthday Sydney!

Cookie favors for her slumber party.
I thought it turned out sweet. Love the pink and green. Special thanks to Lauri of Whimsy Cookie Co. for her cookie design. Check out her other cookies. She is the cookie queen!

Here's an Olivia the Pig cake for a cute little 4 year old. Thanks June Avery!

The boys are in bed, so off to the kitchen to bake!

Howdy Pardner!

Our Family had the opportunity to go horseback riding! Yay! Thanks to a really nice family I met through my cakes and cookies, we had a blast on Friday out at their farm. The little boys were a little hesitant at first. This is Buddy the horse. He IS rather large!
But after a while, John Merritt warmed up. Here he is brushing Buddy.

Sam even managed to pet him a little.
We were so proud of John Merritt for even getting on him. John Merritt is very cautious!
After a few times around the ring, he was in the saddle by himself with Daddy leading.
I got to play with Lil for a little while. Man am I sore. It's only been about 5 years since I've been on a horse!

Here's a video of JM's first ride!

And here's a picture of the first and only time Samuel would get on!
It was a really fun day on the farm! Thanks so much to Cyndi, Taylor, Allyson and Grace Patterson. You guys were so nice and generous to spend some time with us! The boys are still talking about the experience!
