Guess What I've Been Up To???

Making sugar cookies!!! Tomorrow I'm throwing a baby shower for my cute friend at work and we are having a little lunch for everyone. Tasty french dip sandwiches, salads and desserts! Yum! I am so looking forward to it! I thought I better add some sweets to the party!
Here is the recipe:
Elise's Sugar Cookies
1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1/2 cup less 3 tbsp. milk
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
4 cups flour
Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

Cream Cheese Frosting

8 oz. cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
4 cups powdered sugar

My very, very, very talented mom made Stacie and her baby boy this wonderful hooded towel and two washclothes! It's my favorite baby gift to give because they are so useful and they last such a long time! I know you will love it Stacie!!!

So, speaking of my extremely talented mom... here is another one of her latest creations that she gave me for an early Valentines gift. I have numerous sets of these hanging towels that my mom makes for every season and holiday. Are they not the stinkin' cutest things ever?? I absolutely LOVE them! Thank you so much mom! I love you very much!

Okay so now that I am drooling on my computer.. I agree with Breck I will pay you for some cookies since I can see you aren't going to volunteer any. :( When you make the batch for your loving family for Sunday call me so I can take lessons. We are so lucky to have such a talented wonderful mother aren't we!

You gave me that same baby gift when I had Chance and it was sooo nice! I used it with Max and when Taya's pink towel is in the wash I use the one you gave me. It is a great gift! Yep your sugar cookies look delicious to bad I dont have the ambition to whip some up ;)
