ok, so my friend Rachel picked up my daughter, Emiko, and they made the BEST cookies I have ever had. I am not kidding. I literally ate 20 or more of them yesterday--I am so on a diet for the next two weeks! Oatmeal...here I come!
Wow! If you like peanut butter, you will LOVE these (and they are gluten free for all you ciliac's out there!). Enjoy! Thanks Rachel, you are never allowed to come over again (unless you bring those cookies!). Here's the recipe:
Oatmeal Peanut-Butter Chocolate-Chip Cookies
½ cup butter
1 18-oz jar peanut butter
1½ cups sugar
1½ cups brown sugar
2½ teaspoons baking soda
6 cups rolled oats
1 tsp vanilla
1 6-oz pkg. chocolate chips
Mix ingredients and drop by spoons (or roll into balls) onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350° ~20 minutes.
(Isn't she a gorgeous chef!?!)

I love to see my kids get excited, especially when it comes to school! Both of my girls are going to school this year; Emiko all day now and Chloe, only a few hours a week. I can't believe how fast time trots (runs, actually) by. I so love my girls and pray they will always hold me close to their hearts as well. Have a great year beautiful's! I love you and I hope you always know that!

Children. Their lives are so precious and their hearts are so HUGE. It never ceases to amaze me when I watch the little ones play, how special and unique each one of them are. Sometimes a sad situation reminds me (us) how precious they are, and how much we love to see them run, play, and live happy, healthy lives. Please take the time to praise the Lord for your precious ones and pray for those who are ill. As you are praying, please lift up Max's family as they are at the hospital right now with their 4 year old son who has developed complications from e-coli. Please pray for God's intervention and if you'd like, visit their blog for the latest updates and prayer needs for Max and his family. God bless.
