Our Mothers Day Gifts....

If your Mary, Carol, Carrie and/ or Cass... STOP READING RIGHT NOW!!!! Unless of course you want your gift spoiled.......=) We all know how I feel about surprises!

On one of my MANY blogs I followed The Decorated Cookie posted a  super cute idea for Mothers Day
The Decorated Cookie. I decided with all the Tea/ Coffee drinkers in our family .. this would be a PREFECT GIFT!  I searched around for companies that made Photo Mugs with the fastest turn around and pricing. Walmart won! I ordered the mugs around 10pm  on Monday and Wednesday they were ready to pick up. If you pick up at your local Walmart the shipping is free(Site to Store) ! I went with making a Greeting Card and having them wrap it around the mug. It made it Super Colorful and let me add a little personalized note.
We then got to baking! Of course the girls were super happy! They LOVE LOVE to bake! We made the  dough recipe that the Decorated Cookie posted followed her instructions.

Don't they look like little PacMans?
On to the Royal Icing ( also used Decorated Cookies recipe)
Caleigh wanted to make Blue, Green, Yellow, and Pink Cookies.. she helped pipe them on the cookies
Her favorite color right now is BLUE
Then we had to test them out to make sure the cookies tasted good...
I think Brooke's face says there a GO!

Then had to test them out on a Mug

and when the Mugs arrived had to test them out again...
and now the Final Project.......

Seriously , they are so super easy to make and taste SOOOO good! Happy Mothers Day to all the Mommies out there! You are so appreciated!
