Fall LEAVES (one last time)...Painted

We are a SPECIAL school working with some extraordinary children ... and I think the people I work with are some extra special people, too!  (I am sure you feel the same way about the people you work with, or I hope you do...makes each day a joy)  One of them, our psychometrist, wanted leaf cookies to share with her family.  So, I took out the leaf cutters once more  (as if I do this all the my husband thinks so).  But anyway, I got out the cutters and I do believe my previous fall leaf originals cannot be copied....not even by me. As much as I wanted them to...... Anyway, enough talk.  Here they "fall"...

 I'm "going out on a limb" and say this is a maple leaf from my interpretive collection.  My, my that does make it all sound impressive!
A little royal icing here a touch of red there and the golden toothpick!!!

I SO admire the skills and talents of others.  One I've especially been enamored with lately is  click HERE to be WOWED!   the owner of My Little Bakery :) and she has ...well, it's just perfection in sugar painting.  Please take a moment to enjoy her masterpieces and then don't forget to come see someone's desire to paint with sugar.....If desire would just count! 

These next cookies are my favorite "tasting".  They are covered with "The GLAZE".  Yummy!  And they wouldn't have been included at all, but .... I...I  (sniff, sniff).....I broke two cookies.  I didn't mean to.  And If it wouldn't have been after midnight maybe 8 X 4 really would equal 36.   I always (the few times I do this)  make a few extra of each kind...for those cookies that might fall prey to demise.  They never have...until now. We usually eat the survivors.   And all at a time where I could NOT count.  Imagine that...a teacher who can't multiply.  Anyway, these were intended for family.  But they became redirected.  Oh, well.

One last pictoral that demonstates a wonderful head idea gone bad.....
NO!  NO!   NO!

Just an observation...our Heavenly Father made each leaf unique just as he made you and me.  He gave us His Word, His Son, and then He goes and gives us family and friends, and THEN he goes and gives us butter and sugar and cookie cutters......okay, okay, well maybe that's a bit much, but to my God I am forever thankful for ALL His blessings!  Aren't you my friend?
