Chicago: Papa's Prerogative

We recently spent a wonderful Easter weekend up in the suburbs of Chicago, visiting my grandparents, parents, and sister. While there, we made several trips to our favorite bakery. On one such trip, I opted to stay home and take advantage of the one shower in my grandparents' 1950s bungalow while my dad took the girls. They came home with the most gigantic Mickey Mouse cookies you have ever seen. I didn't take a before picture, but here are the girls enjoying their feast:

The cookies had thick, colorful (maybe too colorful???) frosting. They were good, but as you can see, they left a trail behind them.

So what's a mother to do? Why, only give her kids half and finish the rest off herself during naptime. :)

that's a great bakery!! but the food coloring in that frosting always makes me cringe when kids are eating it. at least your youngest wore a bib! :)
