Wordful Wednesday - Cookie/Candy Birthday

Last Sunday, my birthday was celebrated at my sister's house. I received lots of nice presents. We also did our annual Candy/Cookie Day where we exchanged cookies and candies that we've made. Here are some pics from the events:

This is me with my opened gifts. My family always does good with getting me nice things on my birthday. I also received a Dairy Queen ice cream cake and a bunch of helium balloons.

This is my niece holding my mother's rat, um I mean chihuahua. It's only a couple months old.

My great-niece wore an apron. She kept it on all day and was happy to be a part of the festivities.

My nephew and his wife are wrapping up the cookies and candy to take to loved ones. Can you see my nephew's tongue sticking out? He always does that when he's hard in thought.

This is a few of us who put a lot of hard work and time into making the goodies.

My nephew is a huge A Christmas Story fan. He made gingerbread cookies in the shape of the famous leg lamp and the bunny suit. He ices as well as I do!

These are just a few of the goodies we made. The candy overfloweth.

Whoa, that's too much work for me. I let my daughter do all the baking. I'm the cook, (lol) but it did look like fun. I'm your newest follower. Happy Holidays. Hope you find time to come see me.
