Why does time go by so fast when you watch your kids grow up? My littlest daughter is now two. More words to learn, more things to explore and more adventures to be made. She’s such a breath of fresh air and a wonderful cuddle buddy. Happy birthday to my baby…Elaina!
For her birthday, we decided to throw a small party with our family. There wasn’t a theme to the party so I picked two of my favorite cutters to make a few dozen cookies. The week of her birthday was Halloween week so I had a few orders to finish plus a 160 wedding cupcakes to finish and deliver on Elaina’s actual party. I don’t know how I survived that week but I had to push myself to make these cookies because my kids ARE the reason why I create what I create. They are my inspiration and my critics! And every week my kids would watch me make cookies for other parties and their little faces would always comment on which ones they want for their birthday and what colors are their favorites. If I give my all to each cookie I make for others, I can give 110% more for my kids birthdays. So here’s a few pictures:
After Elaina’s party, I realized the impact of overdoing too much and not getting enough sleep, because my body shut down and I came down with the flu! I was out for almost a week trying to recover! No regrets…and yes, I would do it all over again the same way for my baby….
