We had a fun family night activity last year with

|Nutterbutter cookies dipped in chocolate became the ears and tail. |
The eyes are made of Oreos.
|We were allowed to use spoons!|
|Grammie let Annabelle destroy the cornbread:)|
|Uncle Keith has taught her important things like "vroom, vroom" ,|
how to shake her head no, and how to ring a bell.
He bought her a "Mater" truck in honor of her front teeth:)
|Aunt Danielle has been the best babysitter!|
|Brittany took the left over cake pieces from the puppy carving,|
iced the top and added the puppy detail.
|She kept putting her foot in the cake:)|
|She spent most of her "cake time" munching a Nutterbutter.|
|This photo captures her personality perfectly!|
What a joyful day with family & friends!
I believe it takes a village to raise a child
and that there can never be too
many people to love and care for a child.
Annabelle's future is bright because she is so loved!
And there you have it...a happy one year old
and a perfect puppy party!
p.s. Grammie cannot wait to create a scrapbook album!
I can see cute puppies & polkadot pages:)
I often cheat and use the Pioneer Country gravy mix and add real bacon bits. Don't tell my brother, he is a master gravy maker... ALWAYS from scratch!
Once you roll the dough anything can be sprinkled on top!
Here is mesquite ham and cheddar cheese.
Carefully roll the dough into a log and slice into pieces with a sharp knife.
My sister converted me to baking stones-they are wonderful!
Serve warm with a bit of honey for dipping or a side of raspberry jam for a "Monte Cristo" taste.
I divided one batch of dough and made half with ham & cheese and half as cinnamon rolls. Melt 1/2 stick of butter and decorate the dough with brown sugar and cinnamon:)
If you could resist such a beautiful creation please call me personally! My icing is never the same twice. I overloaded this batch with vanilla for a rich flavor. I usually start with 1/2 stick of melted butter, 1-2 cups of powdered sugar and 1-2 Tablespoons of milk, and always vanilla...sometimes 1 teaspoon and sometimes 3:)
If it is true that the way to a man's heart is food, then these biscuits should be at the top of your recipe priority list:)
I would add that such culinary creations also make you the most popular mother on the block...at least until they are gone!
