Cookie Party

Earlier this week, we celebrated my birthday... sort of. 

I invited 5 cute little girls and their mommas over, along with Meme, to bake lots of Christmas cookies!  This is how I decided to celebrate my birthday this year.

I wanted to break my "rule" about mixing my birthday and Christmas! 

I wanted to invite sweet little friends over. 

I wanted to make a mess in my kitchen with love and sugar! 

I wanted to hear my girl giggle with little buddies as they took care of their "babies". 

I wanted to see icing all. over. their. faces.

I loved every minute of this sweet, fun time.

My girl was really excited about baking cookies!  She enjoyed these mint chocolate chips too!
 Little helpers!  They were so interested!
Miss Molly and her momma baked "reindeer" cookies for us!
Mary Cakes and her momma helped make "reindeer" cookies too!
 We made Christmas crafts... Snowmen and Santa Claus!
 Yay for Christmas fun with friends!
 Mint chocolate chip cookies... be still my heart!  These things are super simple and crazy, addictive good!  Bake at your own risk!
 Meme made each of the little girls (and big girls) Christmas tree shaped cakes!  They were delicious!
 The only "man" at our girls get-together!  Baby T is so sweet!
 Emma girl LOVES chocolate!  Maybe that's why she is such a sweetie?!
 Even our littlest friend was happy about the Christmas cookie chaos!
 A finished "reindeer" cookie!  No, reindeer do not have to have the same color eyes... nor do they need a red nose!  Creativity is beautiful!
 We were happy to have Miss Kate join the party after her school day was done!
 Sampling a reindeer... they clearly passed the inspection!
This little lady's smile makes all the mess worthwhile!
I was inspired by Laura's week of birthday kindness so on my birthday, we will be delivering all the cookies we made to local firemen, police officers, and other random people!  I can't wait!
