Paint Your Own Cookies and Weekend Chores

It's been several months since I've made sugar cookies.  With social distancing and everyone a little on edge, I didn't want to make a bunch of cookies I couldn't give away.  Well, Fairbanks has had about a dozen total cases and we went 14 days without a new incident (update: we've had some more positive cases since I wrote this) I thought I would make some cookies and give them to the neighbor kids and send some to Gman.  I made paint your own cookies and figured it would be something for them to do.

I just made basic sugar cookies added a teaspoon of berry extract and 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles.  Then I frosted them with a lemon flavored royal icing
After I flooded the cookie, I used a stiff royal icing and outlined some flowers, butterflies, rainbows and ladybugs. 

Once they were dry I wrapped them up and sent them on their way with disposable brushes and these cute little food color pain squares I got from The Flour Box.  It was a fun, relaxing way to spend a couple of hours decorating cookies.
Dave, on the other hand, is at war with the voles in the yard.  They ate about 1/3 of the front yard and Dave was not having it.  He set 47 traps throughout the yard and is hoping to get rid of them before they move inside.  He loaded the traps with peanut butter and every morning and evening he "walks the trap line" to see what he got.  I think I had more fun than he did last weekend.
