it's a miracle!!

Here is a picture of my miracle:
You might laugh, but these are the first EVER...I repeat...E.V.E.R. cookies that I have baked successfully in my 22 years. Now, I think I have put said this before, but I do not cook, not because I can't do it but because my husband LOVES to cook, I actually am a pretty decent cook, but it's a completely different story when it comes to baking. I'm a jinx, I think somewhere back in the 1500's a witch doctor put a curse on my great great great great grandma that her great great great great granddaughter would not be able to bake. If I actually believed in that mumbo jumbo it might actually make a little sense.

I guess I should admit...these are box cookies, not made from scratch. But at least it's a step in the right direction for me. I used to think maybe it was the oven that I had issues with, but today I learned that the oven works just fine. Apparently it's a issue with me following directions, then again, if you know me, you already knew that. . .

Aaron came home to fresh baked cookies and literally didn't believe that I had baked them. He was so proud...not only did they resemble cookies but they actually tasted good too.

Score one for Kayla!

Emily was dead asleep, but before she went down for a nap I told her that when she woke up she could have cookies. Oh the mind of a 2 year old...as soon as she smelled those cookies she was up from her nap and eyeballing them!



So the rest of these pictures I couldn't decide on so I just did all of them :) ENJOY!
