I'm excited to show you guys these cookies because a lot of time and effort went into them! Why? Well, let me introduce you to someone:
This is our dog Violet, also known as Facey (Facey is her nickname, along with a hundred other names. She's deaf, so we can call her whatever we want!). Don't be fooled by that sweet face... this picture does not accurately depict her personality... I think this one is a little more accurate:
If it's taking you a second to figure out what you are looking at... that's my dog, sleeping on her own head. She's a bit of a weirdo.
So last week I made 3 dozen Curious George cookies for a birthday party on Friday. I had finished everything on Wednesday, figuring that Thursday night would be a nice laid back evening! The cookies were ready to go, sitting on my dining room table. Thursday afternoon I come home to find my sweet little Facey has done another one of her escape artist tricks and unlocked her dog kennel... that we also latch shut with on of her dog leashes! This girl is insane! Well I'm sure you all know where this is going, she jumped up on the dining room table and ate all of the cookies (not to mention our garbage and the rest of her dog food that was in the house... uuurrggg that DOG!)! I'm not sure I've ever been that mad at her ever! And trust me, that is saying something. That night she was in what we called a "sugar coma".
Thanks to the Face (yes we really do call her Facey and the Face all the time) I was up all Thursday night redoing everything. I think I got about 3 hours of sleep that night! It's a good thing I love you Kerri, and don't feel bad - I was really happy to be able to do these for Jack's birthday!
So here are my hard earned pictures. Of course I didn't take pictures of the originals... because apparently I'm not that smart. Here are my hastily done birthday cookies, although hopefully they don't look hastily done...
Happy 3rd Birthday Jack!
Matthew really really struggled with the fact that I was making Curious George cookies and he wasn't getting to eat any of them. I didn't feel too bad though seeing as he was invited to the birthday party and got to eat one anyway!
Yellow hats, of course!
Jack seemed to like them, so it was worth it! Afterward it occurred to me that some yellow ties with black spots would have been a good addition as well. Maybe next time! Although I'm not sure I'm in any real rush to do another set of these cookies! They were fun though, I mean... who doesn't like Curious George?
