Have you heard the Astros won the WORLD SERIES for the FIRST TIME EVER!?
This is what the girls made while they watched a game one night:
It’s Minute Maid Park! With crazy detail!
This Astros fan has a shirt that says “Boo Yankees!”
This is a dad…with a lot of kids!
Astros’ mascot Orbit
Here’s the field
This is Brian holding baby Berkley!
And the scoreboard, with the ‘Stros winning!
The last big Astros food of the week was sugar cookies!!
The kids decorated some too. Berkley’s on the left (she doesn’t like icing), Beckham’s in the middle, and SP’s on the right (she made Julia, their sideline reporter).
To be fair, I tried to tell them “icing is not glue” (cred to Maggie) but they insisted.
Cookie baking went a little better! While the boys were at Star Wars, we made cut out cookies.
I can be a little bit of a perfectionist when it comes to baking (cause I also love eating!), but I took a deep breath and let them do everything cause even more than eating a good cookie, I want them to love baking too.
Berkley asked if we could do this every day. It was two of her very favorite things in the world, eating and crafts, IN ONE!
They made some rock star cookies!
For my birthday every year Laura makes something desserty with the theme of a sports team or something I’m interested in. In the past it’s been FC Dallas Cookies or Astros Cake even WCA cookies. This year she made a Hall of Fame worthy collection of historical and current Houston Astros jerseys. Even has most of the current roster in numbers.
She so outdid herself this year, I have no idea what she is going to do next year.
This is the team that started on the night before my birthday. Including new rookie George Springer in right field.
