Cookie Day!!!

Tonight was cookie night. After lunch at Greek Fiesta, we stopped by Lowes Foods to pick up meat for burgers for dinner. Walking by the pastry section, the Kentucky and UNC cupcakes caught my attention. They looked good! But they weren’t our teams. I thought I could go home and make FSU cupcakes.

Once home, I napped and then woke thinking, ‘cookies!’  I made what Jordan named the ‘Brownie Cookie.’ I had played around a bit and wasn’t sure what was going to happen. The Brownie Cookie was a hit with all my tasters!

Once those were baked, I pulled out of the fridge peanut butter dough I had chilling. It’s a good recipe from Mom. They were my favorites as a child (and my Little Men love them as well.) My tasters were happy they were getting two types of cookie  and wondered what kind I was making next. Ha!

See the large canister on the left? One would think it held flour, but not this one! When I was growing up, my Granny lived across the street. I spent many a days there. Inside this canister there would sometimes be cookies! These cookies are for ya, Granny!
After a delicious dinner of burgers, salad, and fruit we played a family game of Skip-Bo. Jordan had the great idea of playing for…. Money? Nope. Cookies!!! Lol! Of course, who won the first hand? Jordan! No wonder he suggested it!



I'm back on! The goal is to stay up to date and give y'all some flashbacks of what's happened. We did have some Birthdays... my Little Men have all decided to age another year! Jordan is now 10. John and Joseph love to tell me they're now half of 24! Ouch! They are growing way toooooooo fast!

December... Jordan was so excited for his first birthday in North Carolina. His menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'm so glad he loves Brie! Granny shared the same Birthday as Jordan. She would call him her 'Birthday Boy.' Jordan insisted Granny was on the cake with him. *love* This year Jordan's request was a 'Bakugan volcano'. Happy Birthday, Jordan!

I ended up having a Bday, too. It was nice to have my parents up and spend the day with my guys. My age? Well, I'm half of.... or twice as much as.... would sound better. :)

February... John and Joseph started out with hearty eggs sandwiches. Yum! Granny used to make house cakes for Chris and I as kids. John and Joe come up with different themes each year. (I'm glad they agree on what they want!) This year was the first the boys helped. All three of my Little Men took part in creating the 'train' theme.
