I love to celebrate with her on this day. And although I am not able to be with her in person this year, I sent her a box of goodies to let her know that she is loved and cherished!
We both share a love for butter cookies and have some wonderful memories baking and decorating them together. So it was only natural to send her some!
She is having a get-together this evening with some friends and I wanted to contribute a little something. :)
I love how colorful and happy they turned out. :)
I also made her a little something for her house to help her enjoy her favorite time of the year.
These pumpkins are not real. Michael's craft store sells plain, undecorated pumpkins in black, white/cream, and orange that you can decorate yourself. They come in three different sizes too. I love a blank canvas, so I had too much fun hand-painting and decorating these for her. I hope she'll be able to use these for years to come!
Happy Birthday Kristen! Party on!!!
