Books, Books, and More Book Cookies!

The Bonner Springs, KS city library has re-opened its doors in a new location - and to celebrate the occasion, my mom was asked to provide a whopping 300 cookies for the event! After countless hours of baking and decorating (this is back-to-back from the 100 Navy cookies, mind you...), here's the end result. These came out sooooo unbelieveably cute for words. She did about 150 character cookies, and 150 book cookies. GREAT job, mom! You deserve one GIANT bottle of wine and a nice massage for all the work you've done over the past month.

The display - this is just half of the cookies!

Stacks of books (and bookworms!) I spent around 9 hours helping her write all the names of book titles on each of these.
Can you find your favorite book character?
We've got: Mike Mulligan and his Steam Shovel, Angelina Ballerina, Madeline, Captain Underpants, Lilly, Olivia, If you Give a Mouse a Cookie, Cat in the Hat, Babar, Where the Wild Things Are, and Peter Rabbit
