We're having a.......


I'm so excited to tell you we are having a boy!

Slade Jaxon Marrs

I have one son and four daughters. Do you know how many years of pink that is? Don't get me wrong, I love pink. It's my favorite color....BUT it's been almost nineteen years since I've had a son and we are over the moon excited. 

I'm ready for dinosaurs, trains, and one of my favorite things to do with my son was bring him to T-ball practice. 

Since I love baseball for little boys, I thought it would be so cute to make baseball rattles. Here's how you make them.

1. Bake rattle cookies and let cool.
                                                    2. With a #2 tip and white royal icing, outline the cookie and let dry

               3. After outline has dried, flood cookie with thinned white royal icing. Let dry overnight.

4. With a #2 tip and red royal icing add details to cookie. Let dry a few hours. 

Only seven weeks left and the baby will be here! I almost can't wait, except I kinda have no choice. The baby pretty much calls the shots right now. 

So I have to wait....and wait...and wait. 
I'll use all this waiting time to bake cookies and share them with you. 
Sound good? 


  1. Muy bonitas! Quedaron muy originales!

  2. Yahoo for boys!! I have twin boys (two older girls as well) and they are so much fun! So much different than girls. Congratulations!!
