Valentine Cookies!

Here's a little FYI...with Valentines day quickly approaching, don't listen if someone tells you they don't want or need anything, it's not true.  No one really needs anything, but they do want to know they are loved.  My husband would probably feel the love if I cooked a nice dinner, which I totally could, but we both know if we want a delicious Valentine's dinner we're going out. So what are you doing this Valentine Day? 

I decided to do what I do best, make cookies!  Valentine cookies for teachers.

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Wrap.

I was having so much fun with the red and black buffalo plaid, I decided to incorporate it into my gift giving. I really loved the way they turned out and it took no time at all.
Just Kidding!

Woodland Christmas Cake!

I know you're probably thinking, the cake would be red and black check inside, truly that was the plan.  But I was really wanting a chocolate cake.  Like for me.  Because after the dinner, I knew there would be leftovers and I would be the one to eat them.  Day by day, slice by slice.  And I wanted chocolate.  Then I found a beautiful cake online I wanted to recreate.

Buffalo Plaid Christmas!

Filling my center island with dessert and appetizers is always a given.  This year decorating with Buffalo Plaid was so much fun.  I started by gathering all the black display pieces I could find.  Which I found I didn't have a lot.  So I had to be creative.  By adding wrapping paper to frames, some of the décor was created.

Buffalo Plaid Christmas Table!

Each year, long before Hobby Lobby starts putting out the Christmas décor, I start to dream of the theme for our family Christmas dinner.  This past year I decided upon the black and red buffalo plaid design.  Not only for my family Christmas dinner, I also incorporated it into my gift giving.

Disney Themed Woodland Cookies!

Another year and another birthday.  I'm not talking about my birthday, I'm talking about my sister's birthday.  And you know what happens when she celebrates her birthday don't you?  Yes, she goes to Disney and I make her cookies.  In fact she goes to Disney even when it's not her birthday.  Of course I had a plan to make cookies for her celebration, only her birthday came and went, soon they were home from Disney and no cookies...

Wait...Welcome to Camp Mickey!

It's a Girl!

It's a Girl!  Today I can officially announce I have my first grand baby and I am thrilled to pieces.  She arrived September 10th and is the sweetest baby ever.  Like ever.  In preparation for her arrival, I did what every Gramma Gigi would do.  Make cookies.  I thought it would be fun for her to hand out to visitors and staff at the hospital taking care of her.
