Graduation Cookies: School's Out for Summer

The cookie thing is kind of fun, if maddening.  These are for the reception following my son's "graduation" ceremony for finishing kindergarten today. 

Good job, kid!  One down, a solid 19 years to go!  Hurrah for the class of 2024!


Baking and decorating these cookies was a true test of my latent perfectionism.  I had to keep telling myself, sometimes out loud, "I am not a professional baker.  In fact, I don't like to cook" and  "These are for little kids who will not care",  "Stop obsessing about them, they are fine!", and the infamous, "This is so stupid!"

Yeah, I need to get back to sewing ASAP.  

For Abby's preschool graduation last week, I went with the much easier flower bouquet.  Not as tasty but way less stressful!
