This is the final product of those "Army guy" cookies. I realized when I boxed them that I had not decorated a single cookie. Some were obviously decorated by a four year old. They are all cute.
Not satisfied with plain white clone troopers, Billy took magic marker and customized these guys. I have more of his artwork that I must scan and post. He is hysterical. Maybe he'll make comic books some day.
Bill's brother came down last weekend and right after he walked in the door, he said, "First of all, do you have any chores for me?" Need I say that he has leaped into first place on my favorite people list for this month? Here he is, reading to all the kids.
He also took my van in to get a new tire - a four hour ordeal. Thank goodness it wasn't I and six kids sitting there. He's a good guy, and I'm very grateful for his help.
And he's single. If you know any intelligent, Catholic girls who LOVE the Big Apple, let me know! (And since he reads my blog: I'm there for you, bro.)
