Daddy's Birthday

Having a frosting beater is the best! (Or as Avery says "crosting"!!)

I hope you can see in this picture how white her face is from flour!!

OK, I was finally able to offload all the pictures that have been piling up on the camera, so we're going to have to go back about a month to catch up on posts! Ignore the date on the pictures because somehow it is wrong.

September 12th was Craig's birthday and Avery and I made a few special things for him! That morning we made him cinnamon rolls (yes, Pillsbury from the can--one of Craig's favorite breakfasts!) Unfortunately he had to go to work, but that afternoon, we made Craig's favorite cookies...Old Fashioned Sour Cream Cookies. He likes things plain and that's what these are! We added frosting and sprinkles to jazz them up a little bit, and here are a few pictures of Avery helping Mommy make them. She tasted flour that day, too! I warned her it would not taste good, but she had to try it for herself (imagine!) and it ended up more on her face and apron than anywhere else! For dinner, we made chicken enchiladas, Nona-style, (actually Nona was there to help, so that was even better!) and enjoyed birthday cookies for the next couple days. Craig is now 28 and that scares me a little--that's not too far away from 30!!
