Sometimes, my kids are just so clever. And sometimes, I just kinda need to brag.
My oldest son is a senior in high school this year (seriously?! How did that happen?!), and of course, you can’t really slide anything pop culture past a senior. Especially if that same guy is already really into comic books. I mean, if that’s the case, there’s no hiding new movies in the comic book/superhero world. Honestly, my boys know about new movies coming out waaaaay before I do, and usually a year or two before the film even hits theaters.
And the new movie Deadpool has been the talk of our house for weeks. On the one hand, I just wanna see Ryan Reynolds. (I have a feeling I’m not alone in this!) But if I see the film, it’s gonna be a while, I’m sure. Sorry, Ryan!
Soooooo, several weeks ago, when everyone started talking about the Deadpool release date being over Valentine’s Day weekend, my super-witty son came up with the following little poem & posted it on his Twitter:
I couldn’t wait to “cookie” his idea, as you can see!
But in case you just need Deadpool cookies for any other day of the year, there’s still two “regular” designs as well. In fact, I’m pretty ridiculously excited over these “plain” Deadpool cookies:
This is my very, very favorite cookie! I gotta tell ya, though – it definitely took a bit of planning! And here’s a little tip for you: make an extra cookie! I never make extra cookies, and I’m sorta known for wingin’ it, and I was kinda sweating a little while staring at my ONE blank cookie, thinking of how best to accomplish this logo design. So… do as I say & not as I do, and that’s a bit of stress you can avoid by planning ahead & making an extra cookie! #lifelessons
Meanwhile, I’ll stick to watching Ryan Reynolds over & over in The Proposal, I think.
Do you know what cookiers love more than ANYTHING else in the cookie world? Can you guess? It’s receiving cookies from other cookiers! ♥
So I asked a bunch of my cookie friends if they would like to participate in a Valentine Swap with me… and a bunch said yes! I spent the next four weeks in giddy anticipation, ready & excited to start receiving all of their beautiful cookies! And oh my, but they did NOT disappoint!
Now, as the boxes began arriving, my “cookie room” started to become a disaster zone. It was all worth it, though! My husband helped me on the final night of packing, and we decided to sort out the cookies on the table (with all the leaves in for length!) to start an assembly-line process for packing. Even still, four designs’ worth of cookies would not fit, and they are in boxes on chairs next to the table. See?
