There is a baby shower for my sister-in-law, Leslie, tomorrow. She is having her 2nd little boy. Cade will be here in just a little over a month, and Carson will be a big brother! I made these cookies for the shower...I saw the baby faces in a Wilton cupcake book and thought they would make cute cookies (I have to use cupcake ideas on cookies because I absolutely CANNOT make cupcakes cute).

It was an honor to be asked to do cookies for "Operation Christmas Child". I worked with Tracy and Cindy at Dr. Starr's office...we decided to do big cookies. "Operation Christmas Child" is a mission of "Samaritan's Purse." To quote Franklin Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse..."Operation Christmas Child is one way you can make a difference in a young person's life. Since 1993, this Samaritan's Purse project has shared the Good News of God's love with hurting children through the simplest of gifts - shoe boxes! Filled with school supplies, toys, and personal items that are packed by caring people, these boxes help introduce children to Jesus Christ. Local believers follow up with evangelistic programs, and many precious boys and girls later receive Jesus as their Savior."
Several local churches, schools, offices, etc. participate in "Operation Christmas Child." I was introduced to it a few years ago, and more recently have participated in this cause when Macy began school. It was truly a joy to take Macy shopping for a child who is not as fortunate and who's needs are so magnified by the blessings we have and for which we take for granted, and see Macy put so much thought and concern into putting together a gift of little things that will be treasured by that child for many years to come. I urge you to participate! Please visit http://www.samaritanspurse.org/ to find out more information.
Thank you so much, Tracy, Cindy, and the staffs of Dr. Starr's office and Dr. Russell's office...and all others who help make this event in our small town possible.

I have been wanting to do witch's hats in fun colors for this Halloween, but I didn't have a witch hat cookie cutter, nor could I find one. When I was deciding what cookies to do for the party we went to tonight, it hit me to use a Santa hat cookie cutter...only instead of ball at the end of the hat, I did a spider. They were fun and gave me a great idea for next year!
