i love those simple white kimonos. i always feel like brand new babies look best in white.

i tried to shove the black and white polka dot kimono on ruth the other day. apparently she is officially too big for a 3-6 month size. i guess its time to make a new one. . .

maybe luke would eat the cookies if you chopped them up in small pieces and mixed them in luke's vegetable bean soup...


.... or if you put them in the dog's food dish....

Hey I distinctly remember being apart of that week of cookies and I wasn't mentioned. Tear, tear. Ya know though I cannot wait to come to sandy this weekend and partake of those beauties. I'll even take Lukies off your hands. Speaking of the cookies, as though I weren't talking bout them before, the 'friend's' plate have almost an iridescent look to them...you are just what they all say...talented.


Mmmmmmm. My mouth is watering. Right now. See? Aaaaaaaaaah....slurp. I must make those cookies this weekend. Would you mind emailing your special recipe? And that darling little baby top! Shoot, you are so thoughtful [and talented] to make that for your friend. Well, THIS friend is going to start making her wish list of baby gifts from Alysha :)


I'm going to have to make some of those darling kimono-style tops. I love how simple and clean they look. Nice work! And Happy Valentine's Day (feel free to send any extra sugar cookies my way!).


I can't resist sugar cookies either. The plate you made for you friend looks soo pretty which makes recieving something like that even more fun!


Whitney, it is not always about you. I mean you don't see me commenting on how I helped Alysha finish off the extra cookies by eating them all, leaving me with a belly ache that could only be cured by more cow bell, I mean eating more sugar cookies. No, I do not comment. Nor do I comment on the fact that it is LukeY with a Y because Lukies would make him plural, or something and while more than one LukeY would be oh so fun, it would be handful, if that's even what Lukies means. Nor do I take the time out to belittle someone in the family. No I do not. Because this blog is Alysha's not mine.

I could have sworn his name had an "I". If it is true that you helped Lysh by eating all of them, I will be so so, ever so sad. Especially since I purposely said that I couldn't wait to come home to eat them! This is Lysh's blog but partly ours too cause...I mean you write on here probably just as much as she does.


Are you willing to share your cookie and frosting recipe? They look so good!!


touche.. my dear sister... touche...

Although I do wish I didn't eat them all so that I could eat more now.
