Eleven years ago today, I made these nephew-in-his-snowsuit sugar cookies for my family. Little Dylan was then the bundled-up dumpling below, so you can see why I just had to. ♥
At that time, I was in my last push toward finishing graduate school and the baking and cake/cookie-decorating were huge parts of my stress-relief that winter, as gardening was in the warmer months. My family and I ate more than our fair share of buttercream back in those days, let's just say.
And now this pudgy baby who inspired his own sugar cookie is heading to middle school next year. But still: So sweet. ♥
