Ceara's 17th Birthday Cookie

Ceara doesn't care for cake... or chocolate.  Maybe it's just a defense mechanism because her dad used to steal all of her chocolate, so she told herself she didn't like it.  Who knows?  So, in light of those two dislikes, I made Ceara a birthday cookie - 1/2 peanut butter cookie, 1/2 sugar cookie.  Jeff is unaware of this at this time, but I'm sure he will object to the lack of chocolate anywhere in the party dessert!

Ceara's actual birthday is on October 7th, but because she had to work, we are celebrating it on October 8th.  Today.  Or tomorrow, depending on how you look at it.  As I have not been to bed yet, I still feel it is Friday. 

Jeff has always liked for parties to be themed, and since Ceara loves El Rancho Grande, we are taking her there for dinner to celebrate her birthday.  So, he decided that her cookie should be a Mexican theme.  I did my best to comply. 

I could go take a picture of her as she sleeps, however I will wait until tomorrow and just make a new post.  I just wanted to post the pictures now, because I kinda like how it turned out.  Despite the fact that my cactus plants look like green warped ghosts.  It's hard enough drawing with a pencil... icing is not as forgiving!

Sleep?  Who needs that?  Oh, wait... I think I might need a couple of hours!  :)

You are always so thoughtful of other people's likes and preferences, thank you for doing that for my granddaughter! I think the cookie is a wonderful idea and you carried it out beautifully!! I knew that those were cacti and not ghosts! LOL!! I hope everyone has a wonderful time today, especially Ceara! Give her a big hug from me till I can give her one of my own. I'm grateful I have a job but it sure gets in the way sometimes!

That's great, Katie! Love the Mexican theme, and your cacti look fine. I'm sure she will be delighted. Such a thoughtful thing to do :)
