Happy Birthday, Anna!

Today is Anna's 23rd birthday. There's a bit of a joke in our family about how obsessed Anna is with Minnie Mouse. The truth is, she REALLY likes Minnie a LOT, but we've sort of made it evolve into an obsession without her input. For instance, more often than not, Anna gets a Minnie Mouse ornament or some sort of Christmas decoration each year. For her birthday one year I gave her a picture of (the OLD) Minnie putting on makeup - this is hanging in Anna's Athens bathroom. She almost always has a Minnie-themed birthday party. In fact, one year Mom pulled out Anna's Minnie cups and plates from a childhood birthday party. The girl LOVES Minnie.

Because I'm such a FANTASTIC big sister (ok, not really...I used to pull out all the Barbies in Anna's room, "set up," and leave Anna to clean up the mess. Whoops!) I spent my Saturday afternoon doing this:

You can definitely tell that this is my first attempt at decorating cookies. It was time consuming, but fun! I used Eddie's great-grandmother's sugar cookie recipe but I was so hard at work that I didn't even taste it! I'll let Anna decide how they are!

Happy Birthday, Anna Babe!
