Well, we finally got our chance to make Frozen cookies.  My little cookier has been asking to make these since we saw the movie.  Luckily, this last weekend we were able to bring these for a special five year old's birthday!

On another note: I am looking at cookies very differently these days.  I used to spend a lot of time thinking of exactly how I wanted to do them, now I look at them and think "How can little hands help?" It is fun to get to share this special time and it's been fun to watch her creativity. I'll work on perfecting my techniques someday, for now it's a lot of sprinkles.

St. Patrick's Day

This is my go to, easy, yet delicious snack.  You customize it so easily by changing out the M&M color or add a little extra with some sprinkles. We also create all kinds of names for it, this time around it's Leprechaun Lunch.   I can just imagine them sitting around their mini lunch table getting a sugar rush.

It's easy to make and can be made a thousand different ways.
I have made this many different ways, but here's what I'm doing lately

Leprechaun Lunch

8 cups lightly salted stove popped popcorn (2 microwaved bags can be substituted)
1 bag melted, white chocolate chips
1 bag dark chocolate mint M&M's
2 TBS orange sprinkles

Mix all together, let set and enjoy. I found these cute hats the other day and thought certain children would be cute in them, but they disagreed. Viola, Leprechaun Lunch Pails!

"Doughnut" grow up too fast

I'm loving the doughnut puns! This was a fun party and I was responsible for making the "cake," definitely one of the easiest I've been in charge of.

We wanted to personalize the table a little, so I made some 2's with the aqua icing. If anyone has a really good doughnut recipe let me know.  I felt these were a little too dense.

A New Little Blessing

We recently threw a shower for our sweet friend, it was fun to get super girly and embrace the pink, burlap, and lace.

It was a morning shower so we did brunch foods, but we to have some French Macarons for take home favors and a little snacking.

This amazing diaper cake was made by my friend, is it not the most gorgeous thing ever!?!

Sofia the First, The Floating Palace Party

Many of you may know about the Sofia the First craze, but this party was designed for a little girl who, not only loves Sofia, but insisted that the party be a "Sofia mermaid party" after watching The Floating Palace.

 These cookies have icing transfers that I special ordered from Etsy, the shop owner was nice enough to find and print "Sofia Mermaid" just for me
