I was cold this morning when I woke up. It was warm and cozy in the bed, but any body part unfortunate enough to get out from under the covers was at risk for frostbite. Someone had to feed the boys and get the big one off to school, so unfortunately I had to bite the bullet and get up.
On top of being cold it was rainy and blah outside. Definitely a day where I wanted to do nothing once I saw Keith onto his bus. Then I realized it was the perfect cookie baking day for Jacob and I to surprise Keith after school with fun snacks! What made it even better is that I had recently received fuzzy ink’s mustache cookie cutters and hadnt gotten a chance to use them. Perfect opportunity, and they would make the cookies even more fun for Keith!
Fuzzy Ink is your one stop shop for all things mustache. They have iphone cases, shirts, prints and other trendy items. The mustache cookie cutters come in a pack of three different mustache styles, and are perfect for cookies, sandwiches, fruit, you name it. They can add fun to any food (if you can make it into a shape). I had kept the cookie cutters hidden for an occasion just like this! Delicious cookies and delicious fun were had afterschool!
