Not much going on around here lately, but the girls have been adorable as always. Here are a couple of pictures from this week.
Here's one of the little Pita Pocket making her camera face.
I tried and tried to get Menido to look at the camera and smile while showing off her new ring from Bubbie, but this was the best I could get.
She loved her yogurt this morning :)
Coloring, her favorite pastime
And, just a random cute baby playing in her play kitchen.
Now, on to the cookies. I decided Z didn't need any more toys or junk from us for his birthday, so I thought I'd make him some cookies to take to his classmates. Of course, I couldn't just make some chocolate chip and call it done, I wanted to make Star Wars cookies. After extensively searching the internet for cookie cutters, I realized they don't exist. I resigned myself to needing to make my own cutters and found some helpful tips for doing so. Last night when I went to the store to get the butter, flour, etc. for the dough, I happened upon a strange cookie cutter in the clearance basket at the grocery store. I took a chance on it and bought it. Turns out, it was meant to be my Yoda cookie cutter. I just had to bend it a little and reshape it very slightly and it made a perfect Yoda head. I still have no idea what it was supposed to be, but now it's Yoda. I've got the cookies baked and partially iced now, all I need to do now is pipe and paint on eyes, a mouth, a nose and a few wrinkles/shadows. Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of the work in progress. I'm having a lot of fun and am pleased with how they've turned out so far considering I've never done anything like this.
These were my inspiration, but Pete said this person's green was too dark. He made me give him final approval on the color. http://l.yimg.com/g/images/spaceball.gif
