Sweet Things!

As previously mentioned, my awesome mother-in-law, Marilyn, sent us the ingredients for our own delicious sugar cookies right in time for Valentine's Day! So, the day before, the boys and I spent the evening making some tasty heart-shapped cookies-- they were so yummy!

One of the things I always have to remind myself when attempting projects like this is that things are going to get messy, and that's okay. I'll admit that it's sometimes hard to let their creativity take over when all I can think about is how difficult it is going to be to scrub that frosting off of my chairs! But, I think I did an okay job of chilling out this time-- and they had so much fun!

As you can see, Gordon becomes a "flour" child when the opportunity arises.

Cookies just aren't complete without the sprinkles!

This is Gord's finished product: a "cookie sandwich". I love it-- what a fun kid!

Thomas didn't hold back at all when it came to sprinkles. The more, the merrier.

Soft, sweet, and perfectly divine!

These are mine. So pretty, and they hardly lasted the day!

This recipe is really awesome. Chris and I brought them to our sunday school class last week and we got all sorts of compliments. Do you want to make some yourself? Well lucky you, the recipe is right here!

I love how serious Gordon looks in those pictures. Especially when he is dumping sprinkles on his cookie! What a cute kid. I need to come babysit again!

I think I might have to make them. I have to take something to Anna's class for her birthday on Friday and those look so thick and soft. Yumm!

YUM! I love a good sugar cookie. Sometimes, I will eat them for dinner!
