Some cookies I baked today for a baby shower that Nina is hosting tomorrow.
The new mom is doing this new baby daughter's room in hot pink and zebra.
Nina saw some cookies similar to these on Pinterest and thought they would be perfect for this occasion. The Pinterest version used peanut butter cookies dipped in pink sugar.
The new mom is a RD so I am sure she follows the no nuts eating recommendation to avoid passing on allergies to the baby.
So I baked a double batch of thumbprint cookie dough from Betty Crocker,
and tinted it heavily with rose food coloring.
The center is a Hugs flavor of the striped Hershey kisses
I don't think I have ever made such hot pink cookies before, these turned out delicious though!
|I saw this cartoon on Facebook and really like it . |
I am just not a fan of rushing from holiday to the next,
I am not really a fan of rushing anything
So I will just be enjoying Thanksgiving for the rest of November.
|The December issues of Country Living and Martha with their very pretty Christmas covers have arrived|
but I will just wait until Dec. 1st to read them.
|Sweet little Gavin and Elizabeth this morning|
just a coincidence that they both wore Eskimo Joe shirts
|Jimmy came for lunch and Elizabeth was so excited to see him.|
Gavin would of been excited too but he had already left today.
I am thankful for little things like a lunch visit from my son,
a funny cartoon,
and new magazines
there are lots more things I am thankful and this is just the things I am thinking of right now
I added a few kind of new blogs to me on my sidebar.
One is the fun activities of an American family living in Europe.
One is a homemaker in New Zealand who follows Pinterest and actually makes something she pins everyday, then blogs about it.
Another one is about thrifty things made at home and
the one is called Life at Kilkinney Glenn

|I just made the thankful banner this week, so I guess it is new.|
But I used only supplies I already had
I used a Cricut to cut out the brown oak leaves and cream letters, them glued them to a some craft ribbon.
|2 wreaths made by my brother, |
this wall leads into our kitchen and faces the dining room.
keeping it real - can you see the trash can?
|plastic canvas candlestick Pilgrims and Indians I made 10 or more years ago|
The turkey salt and pepper shakers belonged to my grandmother.
|more turkey S&Ps, that will actually be used. |
I don't care if these get handled but I would be very sad if something happened to my grandmother's set
|my father in law painted this turkey and it is hanging by our front door.|

Not sure who to give credit for making this funny graphic, it is being forwarded among most all us Okies.
The weather has been so extreme the past 12 months, we just have to laugh at it and wonder what is coming next.
I may not be doing much blogging for awhile. I am fine however my days are busy.
