David even chose these to be his birthday treat!

  • What a sweet post. And the biscuits look divine! Love the idea of cutting them on the parchment and then just moving the whole thing over!

    Ever since my son was about 4, he has received Lego for Christmas. He is now 25 and it continues to be an annual tradition that this mom just can’t bring herself to stop. While he served in the Air Force and was unable to be with us for Christmas, I made sure that his Christmas care package included a Lego model of some sort which he loved. It brings me such joy to know that I am not the only person out there that believes one is NEVER too old for Lego. Long live LEGO!!!

      Haha! That’s one thing I’ve learned from being married. Boys love legos!
