I promise my child doesn't just eat junk food. As I was looking through pictures today, I tried to figure out why in the world all her pictures are taken while she's eating food. And it dawned on me! She sits still! If she isn't eating, she is going a million miles a second.
We went to a Mardi Gras party on Saturday night. There were a few other kids there that were the same, and around the same age as Elisabeth. Those kids all stood quite near their parents...no mindless wandering or anything. My child on the other hand? Yeah, she was sitting/laying/scooting/running/etc. through the whole vineyard. She was running up and down the benches, touching people's legs, throwing necklaces around, dropping mini babies into people's drinks...you think it, she probably did it. But I wouldn't have it any other way. I love her energy and her confidence. She is amazing.
Glace Icing on them this time instead of royal icing which I would normally do. A lady online highly suggested it, so I thought I'd give it a try. I've never made cookie pops, but I only had one come off the stick. I had some teeny tester cookies that Drew and Elisabeth gobbled up. They were pretty good. I added lemon extract to the icing, so it has a nice lemony hit to it. Divine! I'm making some cookie flower bouquets. Our theme is nursery rhymes so each of the cookie shapes goes along with a nursery rhyme, song or poem. :) Go me!
