Bug Party

My littlest nephew's 4th birthday had a bug theme. It gave me a chance to wear my sparkly spider t-shirt, ladybug ankle bracelet, and scorpion necklace and ring. It also gave my sisters and me a chance to make fun creepy crawly desserts.

The frosting was dyed light green, which is a little hard to see in the pictures.

Beautiful butterfly cookies (Grandma Kookoo's Swedish Sugar Cookies.) 
The birthday boy's brother helped decorate these.

Oh, it's a caterpillar! How clever! So cute!

I'm not turning this into a political blog, but this Daily Show piece that is narrated (and sung a little) by Leonard Nimoy is too good not to share.  I completely cracked up around the 2:30 mark.
