Show us Your Singles!

I am so excited to be participating in Kelly's Korner's "Show us Your Singles!"  This part of her blog has been so much fun to hear about so I'm excited to be able to blog about my wonderful sister, Renee!!

First and foremost, Renee has a heart for Jesus and for sharing his word.  She's been on many mission trips and loves getting to share her faith and God's love to others.

Renee is a "people person" with a fun personality.  She is a computer business teacher at a High School in the Dallas, TX area.  She also coaches volleyball and basketball at her school.  She stays busy but she still travels the long way back to Arkansas often and has yet to miss any of her niece and nephew's birthday parties which makes her #1 in our house.

She is a fan of almost any sport but she mostly loves Razorback football (GO HOGS!), Texas Rangers baseball, and the Dallas Cowboys.

 Renee loves to travel and is marking off the list of states until she visits all 50!

I'm still alive!!

I'm still here I promise!  I heard a saying when I was pregnant with my daughter (our second)....when it comes to kids, 1 plus 1 does not equal 2!  Goodness, isn't that the truth!?!  My daughter will be one next week (how is that possible?!?) and I just feel like I can barely keep my head above water with all the things going on.  Sadly, that leaves little time for cookies :( 

My husband and I talked about it a few months ago and I decided to take a break for a while.  Maybe a long while.  I just need to focus on my family and enjoy my babies while they're still little.  I'll still do cookies for baby showers in our Sunday School class and for Holidays for our family so I'll still post some cookies!  I'm just not taking orders.  Maybe when my kids get a little older I can get back into it.  We just have so much going on right son is 3.5 and has therapy 3 times a week, Preschool twice a week, he's doing AWANA this year and I'm helping out with that and by the end of the day I am exhausted! 

I have one more order this week that I took months ago from a friend of mine from Elementary school so I'll post those when I get them done!  They are Minnie Mouse and I'm excited to do them :)

Hope you all had a great summer and enjoying the beginning of Fall!  This is my favorite time of year!!!

Father's Day

I made these cookies for my dad for Father's Day.  They were up here for the weekend to go to a convention for his work and he played in a golf tournament.   

These were so fun to do!

School's Out for Summer

Ok so I'm a little late with this post since tomorrow is July 4th.  But better late than never! 
My friend Sammy asked me to do some summer cookies for her son's class at school.  I just did an assortment of summer cookies.

Right before I started these, I saw this post from Sweet Sugar Belle to make Hawaiian shirt cookies and thought they were so fun!!  So I had to try a few to go along with the summer cookies.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Simple Bridal Shower Cookies

My friend Tracy, who is the party queen, asked me to do some cookies for a bridal shower she was hosting.  

I thought this shape would be fun!  There was something similar on the invitation.

She wanted some of them to have an S and some not to. 

I really like the colors she used!

Baby Shower

 My friend Jenna asked me to make some cookies for a baby shower she was hosting.  She wanted some birds and some with the baby's monogram and the baby's name.  She sent me a link to the stationary she was using and it had different patterns on them so I used a few of those for the cookies.

The baby actually has 4 names.  I googled how to do a monogram with 4 names and this is what I found.  I like how they turned out!

The baby's name is Evelyn but they will call her Evie, I think it's so cute!
