Decorating Cookies, Part 2

Well the cookie party was a success! Lots of friends, girl talk, and sweets! Oh yes, and lots of eating of the unfit ones. We had an awesome time sharing and decorating cookies for our families and friends. There were carmels, popcorn treats, chocolate covered pretzels, peanut butter balls, peanut clusters, and sugar cookies. Yum. Let's plan on doing it again next year girls!

Making Cookies, Part 1

Here are a couple of pictures of the kids helping roll out the cookie dough (read: eat) and cutting some shapes for our impending decorating cookie party! I used to host just a "cookie exchange" but on the advice of my aunt Chrissy (who freeloads off of my blog! Hi Chrissy!:), I now have changed it so that we decorate the cookies and if the decorating standards are not up to par, then you have to eat it! Works perfectly! Minus the fact that we all gain a few pounds off of the party. :)

What a big guy!

Once Upon a Time

there were 5 little princesses (one who was too shy to be photographed) who decided to have High Tea. They had an exquisite time chatting while munching on little sandwiches and petite desserts.

And sipping their raspberry tea, of course.

And playing dress-up.

When the fun of it all was coming to a close, the eldest princess decided her little friends needed to be tucked in and read a bed-time story. What a wonderful end to a busy afternoon.
Looking forward to our "middle management, doctor or lawyer" tea party. :)
