I have decided to stop apologizing about all the cookie related topics on my blog. For two main reasons.
1. I would be apologizing ALL the time and that gets tiring.
2. What the heck am I apologizing for? I like making cookies and showing you all.
Which reminds me.
"Things That Successful Bloggers Do That I Do Not Do"-Number Two!
2. Don't beat a dead horse.
Ok. Hold. Up.
What the heck does that saying mean??? Now that I think about… its kinda gross!
Beating a dead horse is an action that has no purpose, because no matter how hard or how long you beat a dead horse, it is not going to get up and run. Example: "Let's not talk about it any more. Okay?" Reply: "You're right. We're just beating a dead horse."
Thanks wikipedia. I think I get it now.
So my "dead horse" is cookies. Is everyone on the same page? Good.
Maybe I need to have my own baking blog or something.
In addition to making 16 painstakingly detailed cookies for the fair, I also volunteered to make cookies for the mckpicnic. Why on earth I decided to do so is beyond me.
I had no idea how many to make so I planned on around 100.
I have been up to my elbows in sugar cookies and frosting for five days now.
After all the cookies have been rolled out, cut into shapes, baked and cooled…. then I get to start the fun part.
This is all the cookies outlined in frosting so I could go back and fill them.
This is after I had finished 'filling' the cookies with frosting. Forgive the poor lighting… it was late into the night.
Below was the final product.
I do hope everyone enjoyed them… but I am so sick of the word 'picnic' I never ever ever want to write it out in frosting ever again!
On to pictures of cute kids.
Recognize this cutie? The world famous Stellan and my little Audrey. I love how it looks like she is just sitting there twiddling her thumbs.
Their expressions here are too much. I love it!
If I was motivated I would hold a 'Name This Picture' contest, but, yeah. Not gonna happen.
Hey there cutie!
But afterwords I had to rush off to Sweet Baby Lukes First Birthday Party! Talk about adorable.
And I made him some cookies too.
I think he liked his cake.
And this was my favorite shot of the day…
Lukes mommy Leah and sweet Hannah… relaxing and cuddling and winding down after a long fun day.
More on the mckbrunch tomorrow. Along with answers to your Chisago County Fair questions…
I gotta go cuddle with my babies!
