Maddy is Sweet Sixteen!

A wonderful girl  is celebrating a special birthday.  From first born and first loved. . .to loving big sis, great-niece Maddy, is now SIXTEEN!

Cookies as unique and special as the girl who is celebrating, was my goal for this collection.

Maddy has been a member of her high school golf team for two years.

Every birthday needs cake!  I added the skulls because when Maddy came to visit us at Christmas she was wearing a jacket that had a tiny print that included skulls.  Little brother, Kyle, said, "it's inappropriate," but I thought it was very fashion forward.

February means Valentines, so here  is an assortment to show Maddy how much she is loved.

Maddy has a new job at an orthodontist's office which requires data entry.  A word of CAUTION, if you eat the skulls in this collection, you might need the services of the ortho!!!!

A few characters from, Mario Kart, a favorite game.

For Maddy's artistic side.

Maddy is adventurous and loves to ride on the family's snow mobiles.

Of course, if your birthday is on February 2nd, you have to have Groundhog cookies!

Cookies are even fun to unpack when they arrive in the mail

Love, Hugs and Cookies 
for  a very 
special girl!

Leann is Seven

Penguins, skates. . .
. . . and of course, puzzle cookies were part of LeLe's 7th birthday celebration. 

I keep thinking that she will outgrow her love of puzzles but she recently told me, "Aunt DeeDee, even when I am a grown-up you are going to have to make puzzle cookies for me."

Love, hugs and puzzle cookies for a very special girl!

Every Vote Counts

Three weeks until election day in Chicago and my niece, Heather, is on the campaign trail day and night.   Yesterday, we hosted an open house to meet the candidate and she spent the rest of the day visiting the neighborhood.

In a field of seven candidates, Heather's educational and work experience make her the best person for the job.  Okay, I am a little biased, but one person told her yesterday, "You are over qualified, I wish you were running for mayor."  Look out, Rahm!

I am so proud of this  amazing woman.

Love, hugs, cookies and TWO votes from this household on February 24th!
