Great-nephew, Elliot, requested "all sports except soccer and volleyball," for cookies to share with his friends at his birthday party. I was surprised that soccer wasn't included because he enjoys playing the game. I'd like to think that we have a special connection and he just KNEW that soccer and volleyballs are two of my least favorite cookies to create. However, I think the decision was probably due to a conversation that went something like this:
Mom: "What cookies would you like for your birthday this year?"
Mom: "What sport?"
Elliot: "All of them."
Mom: "Nooooo way! That's way too many cookies."
Elliot probably smiled, pondered (he does that), and eventually eliminated two sports.
Since it is Elliot's special day, I even added a few soccer and volleyball cookies as a surprise just for him in a package that he will have at home with his family.
Happy Birthday, Elliot! On the field or on the ice, you are an all-star in our hearts!
