Veterans Day 2018

Lady Liberty will be part of the Elk Grove High School fifth annual salute to Veterans.  Sixty-five cookies are bagged, tagged and ready to be delivered to our Veterans.

Here's a look at cookies from prior celebrations:

Thank you to all who have served.

Halloween is one of my favorite cookie seasons.

An annual favorite, Frank, met some new friends this year.

 Same cookie cutter, different designs.

 And of course, some itty bitty, bite size treats.


 Sweet Sugarbelle  turned her Scarecrow cutter into a Zombie.  Thanks for the inspiration.

Happy Birthday Ninja Elliot

Great-nephew, Elliot, loves participating in sports.  Basketball, baseball and hockey keep him busy during the year, but for his eighth birthday it was a "Ninja Warrior" obstacle celebration.

The goodie bags his Mom prepared included a medal that his friends could wear or eat.

Love, hugs and cookies to my favorite little warrior. 
Elliot is always an award winner in my heart.

Relax, reinvent, recreate, renew, rejuvenate, reimagine .  .  . retire.

Celebrating Maddy's Journey

Great-niece, Maddy, is graduating from high school and it is cause for celebration.  She has had a difficult journey and learned at a young age that life is not fair.  Maddy has faced many challenges, nevertheless, she persisted!

Since she took an alternative pathway to graduation, I decided non-traditional colors and designs were appropriate for this special occasion.

Maddy is passionate about art and taught me a great deal about Mehndi a few years ago, so when I saw these sugar sheets, I decided to include them in her collection.  I hope she has fun painting them, but I don't recommend EATING them!  Although they are edible, they seem to have a "plastic" texture to them.  .  .Yuk!

Within a span of a week, Maddy is celebrating the end of the school year, then moving on to a challenging program to help her take the next step in her journey toward adulthood.

The world needs Maddy's gentle spirit, caring heart and creative energy.  I wish her good health and happiness as she continues on her journey.

Love, hugs and cookies
to an 
amazing girl.

Hoppy Easter

 I opted for a few simple designs for our family gathering this year.

Some plain, some fancy and some silly.

The sitting bunny is a new cutter so I followed the design instructions that were included with the cutter. However, as I was cutting the cookies I thought the shape looked like Bugs Bunny.  Maybe it was because Bugs was always eating carrots and the kids in our family love carrot cookies so they can eat their veggies. 

Perhaps this cutter will reappear next year as a bunny face.

Inspiration for Bunny with carrot ears:

A Truck Load of Love

Great-nephew, Kyle, has been looking forward to earning his driver's license on his 16th birthday.  His Mom and Dad have told me that he has studied, practiced, and is prepared for this privilege.  No doubt he will be visiting the DMV on his birthday.
I'm not sure what he will be driving in the future.  Perhaps he will choose a vintage automobile. . .

or a jeep.  .  .

 or is a truck his choice of vehicle?

 Carrying on the family tradition of competing in the demolition derby might be in Kyle's future.


Or maybe he will start a new tradition with a monster truck.

Whatever choice he makes, I hope he will remember his driver's education classes, the rules of the road and the many hours of practice he clocked to become a safe driver.  If not, another car might be in his future.  YIKES!

Whatever way he celebrates this milestone birthday, I want him to know that. . .

Uncle Matt and I are sending a truck load of love 
for his special day.

 Happy 16th Birthday!
