A Fun Announcement, Cookie Monster Style!

Well, faithful readers, we've kept it quiet for as long as we could: Joe and I are expecting our first baby!!!  On or around Thanksgiving Day of this year we are planning to welcome another cookie-sampler to our family, and we couldn't be happier!

Back in Early April, I put together some little Easter baskets for our Moms to break the good news, and of course I had to include some baby themed cookies (I couldn't help myself).

Using the same sugar cookie dough that I baked in my Easter Strawberry Tart, I rolled out and cut some cute little onesie cookies with a cookie cutter I actually bought when my cousin announced she was pregnant in December (who knew I'd need it for myself!).

I only had Blue gel food coloring to dye my Royal Icing, which has led some to believe I am hoping for a boy (No Comment).

Hehehe, I had way too much fun making these. I decided to add the Due Date for a little personalized touch.

Then into the baskets they went with a little ribbon and plastic wrap and a baby book to keep them company....

We are so Excited to finally share the news with more than just a few people.  Hopefully I will continue to keep up with the baking (several of my recent posts were the results of odd pregnant lady cravings).

Happy Baking!
