Cookie Score :)

I came across a recipe this weekend that I tried and have fallen in love with.  I have a love for craisins.  I love their tartness and the kids love them as well.  I notice a recipe on the back of the bag that I thought was worth trying.  After the big taste test....they are kid approved at our house and will definitely be made again. 
They are super easy!

Hope you give them a try....enjoy :)

Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookies 

2/3 cup butter of margarine, softened
2/3 cup brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teas. baking soda
1/2 teas. salt
1  6 oz. (1 1/4 cups) package dried cranberries
2/3 cup white chocolate chunks or chips

Preheat oven to 375*  Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy.  Add eggs, mixing well.  Combine oats, flour, baking soda, and salt in a separate mixing bowl.  Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition.  Stir in cranberries and white chocolate chunks.  Drop by rounded teas. onto ungreased cookie sheets.   Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown.  Makes approx. 2 1/2 dozen.

A New Adventure

My son is a sports fanatic.  Baseball, football, basketball, hockey, name it ....he watches it on TV.  The only sports that he has played are baseball and basketball.  He was great at both, but with our move, he never found his "nitch" on a team.  Well, after 5 years, he has decided that he is going to try baseball again.  We are blessed to have a homeschool baseball team in our area.  He was  a little nervous but went right on out there with the other boys and practiced.  He did really well and looked like he felt really comfortable with the other boys. 
I was so proud of him!  We had to start from scratch as far as equipment goes, so needless to say, we have some money invested now.  Bat, batting gloves, mitt ect.   But, it will be worth every penny to watch him have fun.  

Here he is catching a fly ball....and yes, he did catch it!  I will keep you posted on how he does.  Between his baseball and my daughter's softball....we will stay busy!   But this Momma loves every minute of it! 

Have a wonderful weekend!!
