Green Dinosaur

If you know our Bethany, then you know she is a fan of green dinosaurs.  I don't know where or how she picked up on this.  She talks about when she grows up she is going to be a big green dinosaur.  Ha!  Kids, I tell you!

Well, a while ago there was a deal (one of those Groupon-coupon kind-of websites) that had a green dinosaur cookie kit for sale.  I had to grab it for our Bethany!  Where else can I find something like that?  It was made for her! ;)

The kids ask me every evening, after dinner, if we have dessert.  Well, I don't make or have dessert for us often.  It's more for a special occasion or if we haven't had dessert in a while (so a special treat) or if this Mama has the itch and just HAS TO bake ;)  Well, since it's been a while, I think we are going to have dessert this evening.  What is it, you ask?  Yup, you guessed it.  Green dinosaur cookies :D
The kids talked about and talked about making these cookies these last few days.  All day today, all the girls could talk about was "once we get out of school, go pick up Jared from his school, we get to come home and make green dinosaur cookies?"  Squeals were heard everywhere when I replied with "yes" ;D

Here are a few pictures of the kids baking.  Oh!  They did all of the work!...rolling out the dough, using the cookie cutters, frosting and decorating them (and eating them too ;) ).  All I did was move the cookies from counter to cookie sheet, put them in the oven, take them out of the oven and move them from cookie sheet to plate.  They had a BLAST baking some green dinosaurs! :)

Suzan, Brielle, Bethany, Anna and Jared set up for some cookie baking.  Here, rolling/patting out the dough.

The cookies Mama did.  Okay, Mom and Dad did get to enjoy a green dinosaur or two ;)

Finally, they are baked and cooled.  Here, Jared frosting his.  Yes, the cookie kit even came with green frosting!

Bethany frosting
Brielle frosting
And Suzan frosting
Sprinkling on some orange-colored sugar (also came in the cookie kit)
You can't have too much sugar or sprinkles!...let alone frosting ;)
All done!  5 proud cookie bakers!  Bethany
Anna
Jared
Suzan
And Brielle
They were also so good and patient to wait and eat these for dessert after dinner!  They did have to come by and look at their cookies every now and then - Ha! ;)

Thankfully, the kit came with the dinosaur-shaped cookie cutters so that means we always have the chance to mix up our own green cookie dough and frosting and make some more green dinosaur cookies...for another dessert after dinner treat :D
