|Cookies for those visiting Baby Ben|
Our fourth grandchild was due February 1. A very proud grandma wanted to be sure cookies were ready and waiting regardless of when the little one decided to join us. I created a blue and brown color scheme of onesies, bibs, diaper pins, and rattles. The monkey faces seemed appropriate, since baby's blankey is a monkey. The collection was in our freezer, and a "post it" note was attached to Grandma's bag reminding her not to forget them when the phone call came. Sure enough, the call came at 1 AM. Grandma grabbed her bag and the cookies and made the 2 l/2 hour trip to Kenosha. Big Brother Jack needed someone to stay with him when Mommy and Daddy headed to the hospital.

In addition to a plate of cookies for visitors, I wanted to be sure that our son-in-law had treat bags to take to school announcing the birth of their second son.

Ben Alan Zaban arrived on 1-22-11 at 6:17 PM. He weighed 7 lbs and was 20.5 inches long. Brother Jack was waiting in the wings to meet his little brother. Laps around the hall and a PBJ (sadly, not a cookie) kept him entertained while we anxiously awaited.

Life is sweet . . . especially with a cookie!
