Drop In & Decorate® - Huntsville

Today our family hosted a Drop In & Decorate® event in our home. The purpose of Drop In & Decorate® is to bake, decorate and donate cookies to a local charity. Our family chose the Downtown Rescue Mission in Huntsville, AL.

On Saturday, we started the weekend off with a kid-friendly breakfast of "homemade" cinnamon rolls. "Homemade" equals one can of crescent roll dough; one tablespoon of softened butter; cinnamon and sugar. Simple enough and really yummy, especially when paired with a sweet and buttery frosting. These definitely ain't your run-of-the-mill Pillsbury cinnamon rolls.

Then it was time to start cutting and baking the cookies.

One batch of dough down, and one to go.

And once all of the cookies were baked (even a few Toll House Chocolate Chip cookies) we were ready for the decorating.

Let the decorating begin!

There were colorful cookies.

And spring-like cookies.

Kid cookies.

And cookies made with love.

Beautiful cookies.

Patriotic cookies.

Even spiritual cookies.

A lot of cookies!

Happy cookies.

More cookies.

Even abstract cookies.

All kinds of cookies.

And, last but not least, one particular cookie by my beloved daughter - because she loves hearts.

Fantastic! It looks like you had such a great time, and I'm sure the folks at the rescue mission smiled big smiles when they saw these cookies. Thank you so much for organizing this wonderful event.
