I wasn't kidding...

I wasn't kidding about the snow we woke up to on Tuesday. The only 2 people left smiling in our home were Q&A. Oh, make that three including the pumpkin with his blingin' tooth.
Thank goodness it melted in a few hours.
Your costume suggestions were great. I think we figured out what we are going to be... just need to pick up a couple pieces for it.

Some of you might remember the costume cookies I posted about last year for Halloween. I am preparing some roll-out sugar cookie dough again so we can make these with our cousins tomorrow. I used a knife and hand-cut designs & then pushed in some sucker sticks before baking them.
As if sugar cookies couldn't get any better in my eyes, Cookie magazine tempts me into making costume cookies for Halloween! I love this idea because, hey, I love any excuse to eat frosting
and I like being a dork. Which is how you feel when you make your husband hold up a mustache cookie while you hold up a scary tooth cookie.
After doing a little research I need to order these cookie cutters for next year:

I LOVE your photos. Please tell me what lens and setting you use most. Is it a 50mm?
Of course your beautiful subjects don't hurt either. Amazing pix.

Last year I saw your post and made some fun cookies too! The kids put so much on theirs that you couldn't even pick them up. Here is a link to my blog if you want to take a look! http://monkeyboysmommy.blogspot.com/2010_01_01_archive.html

We had so much fun!
