i need to make heart cookies.

the other day, a little bit bored, g stated "i need to make heart cookies." (lately almost everything has been a dire need around here. we are working on sorting out the difference between needs and wants.) but i totally caved to this one. i needed to make heart cookies too. g helped with every step of the process and i must say, he is becoming quite handy with a rolling pin. once iced and sprinkled, we tied a bunch of them up into a pretty little package and mailed them to my grandma. we lost my grandpa a couple weeks ago and we figured it might be a fun way to brighten her day.
p.s. yes--those are big boy underpants in photo #2. potty training is underway. please pray.

So sweet that he NEEDED to make heart cookies. He knew.

And way to go on the potty training.

How cute!! Maybe I *need* to make heart cookies too! :)

I'm pretty sure that "needing" to make cookies is a valid use of the word "need". Glad G understands these things. :)

And now I'm craving cookies!

P.S. Good luck with the potty training. I once tried to conquer it with a particularly stubborn 3 year old boy in day care...after a few weeks, I cried the happiest tears the first day we went without an accident and made it to the potty every time! May it be just as rewarding for you! ;)

Oh that G is too funny! How can you even keep a straight face when he tells you he "needs" cookies? I'd be giggling up a storm!

My job at the daycare got a little more joyful when a little boy went from diaper-wearer to "a big boy!" Stickers were definitely handed out that day! :) Good luck.

P.S. Congrats to the best photographers on getting the library shoot featured! What eye candy!

So sweet! I love the cookies -- since we've gone gluten free, we've yet to find a tasty sugar cookie recipe. Lovely photos + good luck with potty training! :)
