My friend Carey... (I just realized I know at least 5 Carries with almost all different spellings) Anywho... My theatrically inclined friend Carey, (that still describes several of my Carries!) who shared the stage with me in Annie (that STILL describes 2 of my Carries!) recently told me the great news that her daughter had gotten the lead in her school play! Not just any lead, THE lead in THE best musical of all TIME! Katey got the role of Maria in The Sound of Music. So to celebrate her opening night, Carey had me make a set of Sound of Music cookies for the whole cast.
Since this is one of my all-time favorite movies you can imagine how excited I was. If ever there was a movie that needed to be cookie'd this was it! While making these cookies I also got the strongest urge to watch the movie, which made me realize how long it had been since I'd seen it last. Mr. John and I got cozy with the kids and immersed ourselves in the lederhosen-wearing clan's story. Can anybody watch that movie without bursting into song??? It was so fun to introduce the kids to this classic. They absolutely adored it, though they did have nightmares about Nazis that night.
So without further ado, or should I say adieu? Here's what I came up with:
|How do you solve a problem like Maria?|
|Most of the cookies|
On that note: So long, farewell. I leave and heave a sigh and say "Goodbye!"
