Conquering Fears

Carson and I got an early start working on Valentine's for our family and friends. This is the first time in six years that I have attempted to make sugar cookies. My first experience making sugar cookies as a newlywed left me feeling inadequate. It was our first Valentine's and in the trying to be in the spirit of the holiday I tried to make sugar cookies but they did not turn out-I'm not sure if I had a bad recipe or if I was having an off day but in the middle of my failure, the bishop's wife from next door came over with a plate of perfect sugar cookies that left much to be desired of mine. So, after seeing this post from a local cookie connoisseur with a recipe for no-fail sugar cookies I decided to try making them...with my little helper!

We had a great time!

While the cookies were baking I made the frosting and Carson's task was to color on the back side of his robot postcard valentine's. Then we got to decorate the cookies.

Carson loved using his own little knife and after sprinkling the sprinkles he decided that he preferred to dump the whole little bowl on each cookie instead.

He is my goof-ball and I love him. The picture below I normally would never post because my face looks huge but I thought it was such a cute picture of Carson plus I only have two weeks left so my round face is expected.

We are so fortunate to have family and friends close by and we are also lucky to be able to keep in touch with those whom live far away so we like to think of every day as our "love" day! I love my husband and I love us and I super glad that we have each other.

So what is your thoughts on the cookie recipe? I have one that I use all the time. I took them to a party for v-day and they were a hit. If you would like to try it I'll pass it on. This one calls for less flour. 6 cups seems to be a lot of flour to me. Anyways.
