Cast Off Cookies

Today was a great day for arms!  My 7 year old had his cast taken off.  


Background history - he fell off the monkey bars on the first Monday of summer vacation!  Can you believe it?  To show our thanks to the wonderful orthopedic doctor and staff, I designed these cookies for my son to give them.  In return, they gave him the cast...  off of his arm. :)   Will life return to normal? 


With two boys, this is our normal!


arm and leg cast cookies

Lucky for us we had heard about a waterproof cast that you can request.  We opted for that version and were VERY happy we did.

My son was not slowed down in the least...

swimming...
 (it even matched his swimsuit set!)

the beach...

(we did duct-tape a latex glove on his hand to keep out sand)

and even archery, ultimate frisbee, and bbgun shooting...




He even went off the diving board (many, many, MANY times).
We didn't take any photos of that --
What happens in the cast, STAYS in the cast!

How cute are your cast cookies! What a special occasion, perfect for a cookie! And your whole site is great! I'm especially in love with your R2D2 cake and Dr. Seuss cookies! Completely amazing!

Thank you, Ashleigh! It's fun to write about the cookies when there's a story behind them. Those have been some of my favorite ones to do! :)
