STENCIL SNOWFLAKE COOKIES/ Baby Cousin



What do you think is the likelihood of having two daughters-in-law with the same name? My guess is fairly unlikely. I have a friend whose two sons both married girls named Heather. It is such a pretty name but who knew it was so popular.

Awhile back I made Owl Cookies for Heather’s baby shower while she was expecting Mason, who now is big brother to Holden and a new sibling arriving soon. Add to the excitement the anticipation of the arrival of their girl cousin due this spring. This baby girl is the first for Heather H. Are you following me?… keeping the Heathers straight? No matter … lots of memories yet to be made with these darling angels.


Heather’s baby shower had a winter theme with snowflake cookie favors in pink and gray to match the nursery colors. My original plan was a cookie with a pink background and gray detail but instead went with varying shades of the same color. To emphasize the winter theme, look closely and you will see stenciled snowflakes.

BEST WISHES TO HEATHER AND JESSE AWAITING THEIR PRECIOUS BABY GIRL.
