Happy Birthday Lydia!: Shabby Chic Cookies

As most of you should already know, I have been taking a break from making cookies. This beautiful girl is a big reason why, but I wouldn't have it any other way!  While I am still in a bit of denial that she turned one today, like every other major milestone in our lives since having kiddos, I knew we needed cookies at the event.  Lydia's room is a "shabby chic" design and that led to the inspiration for her party theme. 

I had so much fun dusting off my cookie supplies and putting my skills to the test to see if I "still got it."  I decided that I had to have the blue background with flowers and then added some more designs to complement that.


I also put together a few decorations for the party (please accept my poor excuse of photography)...

but everyone knows at a 1 year old's party, it's all about the smash cake!

We had the greatest time celebrating our baby girl.  This past year has flown by and been one with an abundance of love, joy and laughter.  While I have missed making cookies, nothing could compare to the fullness of being a mommy to my two kiddos!

Happy Birthday, Josie: Princess Cookies

I cannot believe I made these cookies over a year ago! They say time flies when you're having fun, but I guess the same goes for busy moms adjusting to having two kiddos at home!

I had the pleasure of meeting Josie's mom, Heidi, when we taught Sunday school together last year.  She wanted princess cookies for Josie's big day and left the design completely up to me.  To say I had fun coming up with these and creating them is an understatement!  Now that we have a little princess of our own that has kept me away from cookies, I thought now would be the perfect time to show them to y'all.

Well, it took me over a year to get these posted, but I still hope you had a very special birthday, Josie!
