Big Brother Sam and Little Sissy Jennifer

Today I had the pleasure meeting Miss Jennifer for the first...

She is a Cutie!

She blessed this world two weeks ago and I couldn't wait to see her.
If you follow my blog you would know her Mother is the manager of the Salon.
Knowing how hectic things can be after a new baby, 
I waited a bit before I made a visit.

The "Big" guy in the picture is Big Brother Sam,
His mother shared, Sam is a little tired of the "taking pictures" thing since Jennifer arrived..
When first asked if he wanted to be in a picture with Jennifer, 
A shake of the head and a very clear "NO" let me know he wasn't having any of it any time soon..
Eventually Sam found his way over to be in a picture:)

I could sit and hold Jennifer all day...! 
She is doing very well with her sleeping and has a very hardy appetite. 
And, I must say...
she already has her Daddy wrapped around her finger..!

 Jennifer is wearing the Head Band I gave her

Sam decided it's not so bad to have his picture taken...

Since I had a bag filled with goodies for Jennifer, I couldn't forget about her Big Brother..!

I made some Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies just for Sam..! 
His Mother says, Sam never met a cookie he didn't like:)

I only had this one picture to show you at the time of this post.
Very simple and very little time needed to create these little cookie sandwiches...

I used a package of Betty Crocker Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix,
made small balls from the dough and baked at 375 for 10-12 mins.
Immediately after placing them on rack or towel to cool,
I flattened them slightly with the spatula so they looked more like a sandwich.
I allowed them to cool, and spread a cream cheese icing on the flat side of one cookie and place 
another cookie flat side, on top of the icing making a Sandwich..

I wanted to keep the cookies small in size for Sam,
especially since I was using two cookies.
during my visit, Sam ate two..!
I think they're a winner.. I told Sam to give back the empty bucket and I'll fill it again:)

Recipe for Icing

8 oz of soft cream cheese.
1/2 stick of soft butter
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
4 cups of Powdered Sugar (10X)

Mix with Mixer cream cheese and butter together until very smooth, 
Add the Vanilla and continue mixing adding the sugar gradually.  Mix until very smooth.
I had way more than I needed for these sandwich cookies, 
but the good thing is...the icing freezes very well.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Weekend..!


  1. Aww! She is precious! Big brother is adorable too! I'm sure he enjoyed those cookies. They sound delicious!

    1. Good Morning, Holly! Jennifer is a doll and Sam is a busy Two year old:) Beautiful Family..! Have a fun weekend with Darbee..!

  2. Good Saturday Morning K, It looks like that precious little Baby is very comfortable and snug in your arms. And I am sure those cookies were just what that handsome little man needed to warm up to you and to the camera. Such a sweet gesture on your part to think of this young fellow too. Thanks for sharing the icing. I just love cream chese icing. Bet it would be great on homemade chocolate chip cookies as well. Have a great weekend. Got Snow??

    1. Good Day, Angela...! Yes, Jennifer is so precious and I could have held her all day..! I really enjoyed the time with Jennifer and Sam. Cream Cheese Icing is one of my favorite too! Yes, it would taste great with Chocolate Chip Cookies...No snow in my area, although some of my friends did wake up to some this morning. Glad it stayed away from me. I have High Winds..Ugh Have a great Weekend:) K
