We had fun this Saturday! I played around with my cheap little camera and had fun. We also set up our new wii. Sam enjoyed helping his Dad. He tells us he wants to be just like him and even puts on a belt when he wears jeans and a t-shirt.
My parents came by to return Scott(Mom really missed him and so did everyone else). He was welcomed home with cheering and hugs. they all wanted to play wii with him. My parents even played wii. It was the greatest. My Mom is still a pro not only in the real world but in the virtual world as well :) My Dad boxed with the kids and boy is he gonna be soar in the morning (I know I will). It was a lot of fun. I love games and toys that make you feel like a kid again and the wii definitely does that!!!

I made Jen's no fail Chocolate chip cookies. They always turn out sooooo awesome but this time I wanted to try and use wheat flour instead of bleached flour. So I tried 1/2 wheat+1/2white and they turned out great!!!
Here is the recipe for Perfectly Delicious
Chocolate Chip Cookies
· 2 Cubes Butter (room temperature)*I used our homemade butter in these cookies but store bought butter gets the same results*
· 1 1/3 Cup White Sugar
· 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
· 2 Eggs
· 1 ½ tsp. Vanilla Extract
· 1 tsp. Salt
· 1 tsp. Baking Soda
· 2 2/3 Cup Flour
· 1 Cup Oatmeal
· 2 bags Chocolate Chips (semi-sweet is best)
· Nuts (optional)
· Cream butter and sugars till well blended.
· Add eggs and vanilla, mix well
· Mix salt and baking soda in wet mixture till well blended.
· Add flower 1 cup at a time till well blended
· Add oatmeal, till wet
· Finally add chocolate chip cookies
· Place golf ball sized dough on un-greased cookie sheet.Bake in preheated oven 350 Degrees for 13-14 minutes
You can substitute 1/2 of the flour for wheat flour and they turn out fabulous as well!!! Enjoy and tell me what you think if you make them:)Jack-Jack loved them!!!
