hometown, busytown

While I am exited to visit the lake, swim in the pool, and relax on my mom’s back porch, I am most looking forward to visiting with my niece and nephew from California.  They love Busytown. And I love them.  And you know what that means: Busytown cookies.

Two Thanksgivings ago (two years ago on Thanksgiving) I made my first attempt at character cookies with these Goldbug cookies for my nephew.  I have had a bit more practice since then and I think these are a significant improvement.  I can’t wait to share them with my little loves.
