My oldest son's birthday is today.
Happy Birthday Neil!
He is away at college still, so I sent him cookies in the mail. They weren't super fancy because I just didn't have time to design him some cookies meant specifically for him. (I had envisioned making him cookies related to his next semester in Johannesburg, South Africa.....but it just didn't happen.) For those of you following my blog for a while, Neil is the one who was in the bad accident when he went to Haiti in May for a mission trip. He is doing very well, by the way.
So this was the best I could come up with.....wanting him to know I was thinking about him on this special day that he was away from home.
And in keeping with my constant barrage of Christmas cookies.....I couldn't let a day pass without showing you another new cookie design. ;)
I made a ton of trees last week.....so I'll show you more of those soon.
My son, Keith, is coming home from the Army tonight! We are super excited....as he has been gone since July 8th. He did his basic training and Advanced Individualized Training at Ft. Jackson, South Carolina.....and now he is coming home for Christmas. You can only imagine how happy this momma is. :)
Then Neil comes home from college on Saturday....and that evening we are having a big Christmas party here. What a wonderful weekend it is going to be!
I must get busy......but I'll try to post a few pics each day even though things will be CRAZIE around here...........
