Thankful Pumpkin Cookies

I made these cookies for several different people to express my gratitude.

My middle son had a play date today with a classmate, so I decided I would give the family that so generously took my 4 year old off my hands all day some cookies. I bagged the cookies, and let my son draw on the bag for his friend Zack's family.

Thanks Doug!

The next set of cookies went to my ever so talented hair dresser and the girls at the salon. I was long overdue for a haircut, and I always appreciate her time and her talent.

Thanks Kelly!

The next set (I forgot to snap a picture but they looked like all the rest) went to my dear sweet friend Lisa who generously handed down some clothes to my youngest. I've been meaning to make her cookies for months.

Thanks Lisa!

Kitty Cat Race 2011 Snowmobile Cookies

I was asked if I could make some snowmobile cookies to hand out with trophies for the Kitty Cat Race this weekend.

I toyed around with the idea of making my own cookie cutter or hand cutting the cookies, and then Rachel and I decided I would make them to look like a Snowmobile Crossing sign. So here they are the individual snowmobile was done free hand, so each cookie is slightly different.

Good Luck Kitty Cat Racers! 

Thanks Rachel for the order!

Many Fall Cookies

Our church is having a Fall Fest tonight and my good friend Pam asked if I would make cookies...secretly I think she just wanted them for her own enjoyment, but thought that the kids at the Fall Fest would also enjoy them.

So here they are 60+ the shape of maple leaves, oak leaves, pumpkins, apples and acorns. The extras will go to the people in the arthritis water aerobics class that I teach on Fridays.

Fall Cake for the Randy Pluff Benefit

My friend Kim asked if she could order a cake to take to the Randy Pluff Benefit, I believe the cake was going to be used in a "cake walk".
Here is a link describing the reason behind the benefit.

We discussed a few different ideas of what the cake should look like, and decided that a fall cake is what we would go with. The cake is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting.

5 girls~50 miles Cookies

Some of you may know this but I have been training most of the summer and fall for a running race. Well that race occurred yesterday, it was a 50 mile race that I competed in with 4 other girls. We each took turns running different legs of the race, and I ran a total of 11.3 miles.

Now those of you who have known me for a long time I was never a "runner" a swimmer yes, but I was never a "runner".  Somewhere during the training I started enjoying my runs, and I am looking forward to many more races in the future.

Since my entire team had never competed in the Fall 50 before our team name was the "Fall 50 Virgins". Unlike most of our competitors we did not have team shirts, but we did have team cookies.

My birthday treats.

Today is my birthday and I enjoyed my day with family and friends. Last night I put together a Pumpkin Monkey Bread from this recipe.
And let it rise for the last time in the refrigerator, and my wonderful husband was nice enough to put it in the oven and wake me up once it was baked. I put the Monkey Bread in my crown cake pan rather than the Bundt pan that the recipe calls for. We all enjoyed the Monkey Bread (this was the second time I had made it) before showering and heading to church.
After church we were invited to some friend’s house for dinner, and I volunteered to make the cake, I made myself a double layer white cake with frosting and fresh fruit. The majority of the cake was eaten, but there were 6 adults and 10 kids that feasted on it. I'm sure I will enjoy the rest either as a bed time snack or breakfast tomorrow.

I made 15 white cupcakes and 15 chocolate cupcakes, and frosted them with blue frosting like water...and added Swedish Fish to them...the year I coached the Girls Swim Team, they were a team favorite. 

Happy Birthday Carly!

Thanks Megan!

Fire truck Cookies for my son's Kindergarten Class

Some of you may remember that my first "try" at cookies was just last year when the fire trucks came to visit my oldest son's 4 K (preschool) classroom.

Well, today his kindergarten class was visited by the Sturgeon Bay Fire Fighters and I made his class fire truck cookies for the occasion.

I've made a lot of fire truck cookies this week as my middle son will have the fire truck visit on Thursday, and I am making cookies for all of the 4K afternoon students to enjoy. 

They look vaguely similar to these.
