Welcoming Ben

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.

Cookies to be bagged and tagged
 for the proud daddy to take to work.
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. 
Design was based on a Christmas
Ornament that I spotted at Menards.

The Zaban's
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.

Start saving now for that college education.

Cousins Kylie and Kendra came to visit at the hospital.

Life is sweet . . . especially with a cookie!
