An Elephant Never Forgets… March 24, 2017

I have a friend who has done me the favor of taking countless pictures of me, my kids, my dogs and more.  She’s always happy to try an idea and never accepts money for her time. She’s just happy to grab her camera and spend time playing with me to capture something special.

A few weeks ago she reached out asking if I could help come up with a special cookie that she could take to her mom who is declining from Alzheimer’s.  She sent a few Pinterest elephant ideas and asked me to just do whatever I had time to do.

I borrowed this sweet elephant cutter from a friend and made a dozen cookies for her to take back to her mom to share with the nursing home staff.

We’ve lived across the street from this family since our daughters were 6 years old.  This year they’re turning 16!  Time flies!  I wanted to do something fun (yet practical because that’s what I do).  I decided to give cash for this special milestone birthday.  16 $5 in this fun pizza presentation.

Teachers are special people.  The time and energy they spend teaching our children is awesome.  Our PTSA organization does a great job of showing appreciation to our teachers and all of the staff at our elementary school.

When my PTSA mom friend asked if I would be able to make something for the Valentine’s Sweet Treats appreciation event in February I was more than happy to contribute.  I made these cute little cookies for the event.  The pink and blue alligators are my favorite!
