The Very Hungry Caterpillar

“One Sunday morning the warm sun came up and - pop! - out of the egg came a tiny and very hungry caterpillar.” 


“On Saturday, he ate through one piece of chocolate cake, one ice-cream cone, one pickle, one slice of Swiss cheese, one slice of salami, one lollipop, one piece of cherry pie, one sausage, one cupcake, and one slice of watermelon

That night he had a stomach ache.” 
― Eric CarleThe Very Hungry Caterpillar

And I'll leave you with a tip.....

Don't leave your babies in the bathtub with your shampoo within reach.

Ruffled Rainbow Tutorial

Theres something so fun about anything rainbow, and something REALLY fun about rainbow cookies. I have been itching to do more rainbow cookies since Taylors party, so I was really excited to do some last week.

Ruffled Rainbows

Rainbow Cake

So fun, right?!

So I thought I would share a little something fun for the cookie decorators out there.

Ruffled Rainbow Tutorial

For your icing: Make whatever colors you are wanting to use. Keep your icing a thick piping consistency. If you don't, your "ruffle" won't look like I ruffle. It will run together.

 #1.Outline the cloud on your cookie. I matched the invitation to the party I was doing so I outlined in teal. I have also outlined in white and they both look really cute.

#2.If you outline your cloud in a different color, wait to flood and sprinkle your sanding sugar until it is dry. If you outlined in white, immediately flood it and sprinkle it with sanding sugar.

 #3.working in whatever order you want your colors, make your ruffles, and you are done!

Soaking Up the Sweet

I am soaking up a lot of sweetness in my life right now (hence the absence of blogging). Parker is turning into such a little boy and gets funnier by the day.

I am trying to prepare myself for kindergarten coming up in August, and it is nearly killing me. I tossed around the idea of homeschooling but after a lot of prayer have decided that's probably not the best thing for us right now.

Taylor is quickly losing all of her "baby." She is independent, sassy and hilarious. She definitely keeps me on my toes. 

And of course sweet Sawyer who will be here in April.....
(Sorry for the blurry pic)

And since I'm not busy enough with everything else, my "cookie break" has turned into taking a few orders here and there :).

I have a lot of catching up to do on cookie pics, but I'll start with a few I did for sweet Meredith. These pics are long over due but better late than never!

Carson had a "camping" themed getaway birthday with his family. Meredith knew what she wanted but let me pick all of the details. I couldn't resist the toes hanging out of the tent :).

Little Hunting Boy :).

A Manly Cake

And a dinosaur by request of the birthday boy :). 

Meredith has the sweetest family and 3 of the cutest little boys you will ever see. I hope I am part of many more birthdays to come!

Do you all remember the auction the blogger world put on to benefit Julee and Preslee?? Well, the sweetest lady won the bid, and I did some Hello Kitty cookies for her little girl.

These cookies were so special to do, because we were able to minister to Julee, and it was so neat to see people willing to give above and beyond to make that happen! Thank you Karen for your generous donation, you were a joy to do cookies for!

I love that God gives everyone different gifts and I hope that I can use mine to be a blessing to others!

"We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. If a man's gift is prophesying, let him use it in proportion to his faith. If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; if it is leadership, let him govern diligently; if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully."

Romans 12:6-8
