Here is the recipe I used:
- 1 C. butter, soft
- 1 C. dark brown sugar
- 1/2 C. sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 C. whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 2 C. quick cooking oats
- 1 package milk chocolate chips.
- Mix up in the usual order (I do everything in one bowl - no pre-mixing dry ingredients for me). Drop by tablespoon scoop and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
Before I get to my new layouts, I want to share my digiscrapping news. In June I participated in the challenges at The Lilypad. I completed all seven challenges and was entered in a drawing to win a guest spot on their CT. And I won!! My guest spot has already started, I'm so excited!!
Now on to layouts. Miller recently had blood drawn for some labs ... I'll just say it was not a fun experience, and I am so glad it is over. It has now been about two weeks since it happened. The scientist and I stayed at Miller's preschool for about 20 minutes this morning and just watched him a little. He was playing with a little boy on the swings, and after a while Miller asked the boy several times, "Did you know I had to have my blood taken?" It seemed that Miller really wanted this other boy to know about it. James thinks it is like a war story for him ... this horrible thing he went through, but he made it, so it's worth bragging about.

Miller had a blue life jacket that he used in the pool for the last two summers. It is now, of course, much too small (I think it was even too small last year). We got rid of it and acquired a new Coast Guard approved jacket for this year. But he would have nothing to do with it at first. He refused to go swimming at all ... for a while. Now he loves it.

And a couple Project: Love, Me pages. This month the general topic is celebration. I'm not a real big celebrating type person, but I do love cake...

And here I wrote about a failed tradition that James and I started several years back: reading the Declaration of Independence on 4th of July. I still hope to get this tradition going again.
