Tennis cookies!

Happy Birthday Emil!!!

My husband's second oldest brother, 

(Joe is the youngest of 5 boys and yes his mother IS a saint)

had a VERY important birthday recently.

Sorry, can't tell you which birthday.

I am quite fond of my brothers-in-law 

and since they tolerate me pretty well,

 I'd like to keep it that way thank-you-very-much.

I'll just say, it was an important enough number that 

lots of fun people came to visit and

helped finish off a fabulous amount of margaritas...

....and wine....

...and some Croatian beer too....

.....and gin and tonics....


Emil loooooooves tennis.


So it wasn't hard to decide to what to make for him.

According to his lovely wife he practices his serve all day long.

He's lucky enough to have his regular tennis partner live in the neighborhood.

They get together to play a few times a week.

I've never asked Emil which one of them was a better player....

but I figure if he was having a particularly rough day and couldn't quite beat him....

...a little distraction wouldn't hurt.

Hope you had a great birthday Emil!

(Hope your head didn't hurt....)

What was that?

Oh yes....that is a giant sugar cookie tennis court.

Would you like a bite?

(construction pictures coming soon...)

Thanks for stopping by,

  2. those rackets are amazing and I am intrigued by the Croatian beer...something you buy locally?

    1. It's a little hard to find, but they buy it at Bev Mo. Karlvacko! (a few of those letters need accents over them...).
