The Best Day

Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero. ~Marc Brown

Today I had the pleasure of meeting a family whose joy in being together was evident. Thank you for letting me capture your very precious boys.

As you can see I had a difficult time picking just one for your sneak peek – hopefully this will tide you over until you arrive back home from your vacation and can view the rest!

Thank you for making my job so fun today Shannon & Ryan.

~yum~ What’s not to love about these sweet perfect little baby cheeks?
Little Miss A is 6 months now and growing quickly. I just loved her sweetness, her family is just so blessed with this little girl.

Happy Easter!

For those looking to spend a little family time with the kids I thought I would post my favorite sugar cookie recipe.

Iced Sugar cookies

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 Tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon orange extract
1 Tablespoon vanilla

In large mixer bowl combine all ingredients until mixed well - chill two hours ( I sometimes just skip the chilling if I am in a hurry) On a lightly floured surface roll out dough cutting into 1/4 inch thickness. Place one inch apart on cookie sheet - bake at 400 until edges are lightly brown.

Icing - I put about 2 cups confectioners sugar and mix oj in with it until it is the consistency that I want and add food coloring paste to make it the right color for what ever holiday shape I am making and I brush the icing on with a pastry brush.
