#6 Cookies for Mirah

Cookies. A tradition that always makes me feel really nostalgic. I miss Grandma, I miss getting these cookies in the mail for my birthday. Every time these cookie cutters come out, I feel so thankful that I got them.

I made the cookies in shifts this year. Tuesday I made the dough.

Wednesday when Karl got home we baked them.

We usually do it while he is at work. It just lined up this way, Lucas took a later nap than I had planned, so we were able to get lots done while he slept.

It’s a 6, not a 9.

I doubled the recipe. Why do I always do that? We don’t need that many cookies!

Don’t worry, Lucas woke up snuck several freshly baked cookies while I wasn’t looking.

Thursday, on her birthday we decorated them.

Aftyn came over and we decorated together.

I baked all of the little holes, and made tiny cookies out of them.

These are my boring cookies.

Later that evening, we had cousins over for a little family party, and the kids had fun decorating them some more.
