I think I have found my NEW favorite cookies! I saw these on Pinterest and they looked so yummy. They are a cookie, but the texture is almost like a brownie. It's like two great things combined. I made a double batch the first time and we ate every one! I made a second double batch and gave out to neighbors and friends. Here is the site with the recipe I used. Classic Crinkle Cookies
Christmas was nice, not too hectic. Our youngest was up at 2:30 trying to wake his sister to find a gift that was suppose to go into my stocking. By 3:00 he was in our room trying to get us to wake up (LOL) He went and got on the couch and slept until 6:00. That's a very reasonable time to me to wake up, so we all got out of the bed. The oldest child was the hardest to get up! He thought it was crazy to get up at 6:00. I tried to remind him what it felt to be nine and want to be up early. By 7:30 all the gifts and stockings had been opened and the traditional cinnamon buns eaten. Here are some pictures that followed, before it was time to eat.
The middle child wouldn't let me take any pictures of her. I hardly have any pictures of her lately:( The inside cat jumped out the middle's window and ended up on top of the tree house. When I called his name he ran across the top and climbed down the front (LOL) Issac helped my husband with some of the cooking. We ended up having ham, smoked & grilled turkey, mac & cheese, scalloped potatoes, green beans, cooked mixed greens, rolls, sweet potato, apple, cherry & chocolate pecan pies. It was a nice day and a very nice dinner.
