Matthew and Melinda were not able to come home for Christmas...and so they missed the iced cut outs my husband makes. These are the only thing he still makes from his days as owner of Boucher's Bakery. Yes. We once had a bakery in Marinette.
I know I have told this before but here it is again.
Patrick does the rest.
I never worked at the bakery. Well...once or twice in 17 years. I was home with the children.
But every day we had cut outs. Fresh white bread, brownies and cut outs.
The boys worked for their dad when they were old enough to do something. I remember Matthew running the bun slicer. Oh dear Lord. It was a big machine.
And Patrick delivered baked goods in Michigan a week after he got his drivers license.
Hit. the. ground. running.
So I thought it would be really nice to bake cookies when they kids were here. Besides...everyone wants to eat them and it would be a fun activity.
Here we go!
A little cheer :o)

The cut outs were adorable shapes and quite large. I saved some when we sold off the bakery equipment and handed them out the the Boucher children. But Patrick likes this little cutter I found for him at a rummage sale.
Making cookies and memories.
The remains of the day.
Asher had so much fun and he LOVED the cookies!!!
We all loved the cookies :o)
