What We Did and a Surprise!

Last post I told you I would tell you about what Mom and I did on Mother's Day and show you some pics. 
I figured it was Mother's Day and Mom should spend the day doing things for me....you know, Mom work. I made a list and sent her to the store. She wanted to get a few things for the house and I told her she could (see how nice I am).
You guys might remember when I got my GABE winnings from Dory and had to snatch the cookies from my Dad.
Since I had already devoured them I wanted some more and the ingredients are what I sent Mom after. I couldn't get her to take too many photos while making them. She kept saying her hands were messy.
Stick 'em down here, I'll clean 'em up for ya!
I stood right under her feet the whole time and quivered with anticipation.
She did let me taste some of the batter. She said Grandma used to let her and Uncle David taste the cookie batter when they were kids too.
I don't see why those things need to be cooked
they taste divine!
One of the things I put on Mom's shopping list was a cookie cutter that was dog related....you know, a bone, paw, doghouse, ANYTHING related to a dog.
What did she get? Nothing!
How in the heck is she gonna make my cookies?
She told me they didn't have any at the stores she went to. I don't know what kind of stores she shops at but if they don't have all things dog related I don't think she should be shopping there anymore! Anyway, she dug around and found a couple cookie cutters that she got for free.
Yes, your assumptions are correct! My mom does not bake! Ok, thats a lie....she just doesn't bake anything home made so she has not had a need for cookie cutters. These things were brand new....never been used. 
If you can't quite tell, she had 2 cookie cutters of M&M guys....weird. Now, I've tried to convince her that she should give me the whole cookie but she breaks them into pieces before giving me any. And, she has convinced Dad to do it too. I think they are being chintzy!
Dory posted the recipe for these yummy cookies here and Mom says they aren't hard to make at all.

Oops, I got a little off track talking about my cookies and I bet you want to know about my surprise. I won a giveaway from Maybeads of this wonderful pink turtle last week.
I bet you're thinking, where is the surprise....
I'm getting to it....
In the envelope with my turtle, was me!
Can you believe it? A mini me!
Thank you so much Lauren! I feel so honored that you made me into a bead.
If you haven't visited Maybeads please head on over and take a look around. She makes some super cute critters!
(I heard she has a thing for wiener dogs!)

Pawrents left us with grandpawrents and went away during mother's day . . . ><;

ocmist said...

Yep... Moms (and Grammys) are good for spoiling us aren't they?! We are so glad that you got to spend some time with her, AND that she made you some more of those yummy cookies!

We are going to have to go over and get that recipe. Those bead critters are really cute, too! How wonderful to be immortalized in a bead sculpture! The CCC

We know our Mom has the cookie cutters - just getting her to make the recipe is the hard part - but we're trying.

Great beads by the way - we're going to check that out too. Maybe she has a Scottie one.

I don't think the shape of the cookie changes the taste. I'm just sayin'.
I LOVE...LOVE the TWIX BEAD thingy.
You did a grrreat job of making your mom's day special.

M&M guy shaped doggie cookies are a win-win if you ask me! If you can't have chocolate, at least you get the M&M guy. The cookies look great!

Thanks so much for posting the beads I sent - that was really sweet! I'm so glad you like them!


Maggie and Mitch said...

What a cute wiener doggie beady! We love it!

Love ya lots,

Aaaaah, the gorgeous Maybeads! You lucky! I would be honored too if Lauren made a Twink bead, but I'd feel sorry for her at the same time. Your bead turned out Twixerific! For a moment I feared you weren't telling us you were part turtle BOL
