cookies, cookies, cookies!!!

Today was COOKIE DAY for Jamie, Laura, and me. We had been talking about baking cookies to send to our hubbies in Iraq, and we finally got to it today. After dropping the kids off at school, Jamie and I went to the commisary to buy all of our ingredients. We then went to Jamie's house and got busy! LOL Here is the counter in the midst of the baking morning...
We actually were baking ALL day. We started after our commisary trip and didn't stop until about 6:30pm! I think we ended up with 7 different kinds of cookies, or was it 8??? It was a lot, no doubt about it! Here we are posing with our almost complete cookie stash...
and here are the cutest cookies of the bunch! Our little turkey cookies! They were so much fun to make. We will have to do them with the kids on another day. They turned out sooo cute. I just know that they will love decorating them by themselves.
So, Jason, get ready for a box FULL of cookies! They will be mailed tomorrow, so you will have some yummy goodness from home SOON! I love you!
