“You’re Killing Me Smalls! - Joshua

Josh is the second child of my sister Kristine. Right now he is serving an LDS mission in San Diego California. I had planned to mail his cookies to him, but right after I had baked his cookies, I read his weekly email he sends to his family, and he just got transferred into the middle of the desert and he only gets mail once a month now! That really put a damper on my plans of mailing them to him, because I am not sure when he actually gets the mail so I just decided to put the un-decorated cookies in the freezer and I decorated them before I came down south to visit my family. So Josh did not get to enjoy these, but his siblings and parents did instead. :)

Josh is a pretty big kid and I think it might be because he can down a couple of gallons of milk all by himself in less than a week. His poor mom spends a lot of money on milk when he was living at home. So I had to do some milk cookies!


And of course since he is serving in California right now I did some state of California cookies.


My memory of Josh is why I did the next cookie. My sister and her family live in the same town as my parents, and every Sunday those that are in Kanab also go to my parents for Sunday dinner. Seriously, it is the best day of the week. We get to enjoy each other's company and my mother's home cooking. Well while I was living at home probably during a summer break from college, I remember every Sunday the Barton clan would arrive and Josh would come running in and first thing he would do was stick in a video tape into the VCR and watch a movie. That movie was "The Sandlot". This is a great movie and if you have not seen it or your kids have not seen it you should rent it or Netflix it. It is a cute funny show and it was also filmed in my home state Utah.

So many great quotes from this show.

"The kid is an L7 weenie!" or my favorite 
"This pop isn't workin', Benny! I'm bakin' like a toasted cheese-it! It's so hot here!"

Josh could sit in front of the TV and act and quote every line of this movie as a little kid. When he gets back maybe we will have to see if he can still do it. :)




And of course some Super Heroes! Josh loves all superheroes. I couldn't go wrong in which ones to do because he supposedly loves them all! I recently got the Williams Sonoma Hero set so I tried out these three guys.


The whole group.
Happy Birthday Josh!
