I know that many of you will think that this is a lame post-but those of youwho really know me will be impressed! I don't bake, i hate to bake. I really only like to be in my kitchen cause it's cute. Anyway-i am trying to turn over a new leaf-and tell myself everyday-i love to bake and cook dinner. I figure if i say it eough than i will believe it and all will be better. i found this really yummy choc. chip cookie recipe online and i wanted to try it. I know that most of you probably already have a favorite, but i don't. Mine never work-well this time they did. So-i thought that i would share the recipe-it is super good and easy and very yummy!!

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons hot water
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Cream together the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla. Dissolve baking soda in hot water. Add to batter along with salt. Stir in flour, chocolate chips, and nuts.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased pans.
Bake for about 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until edges are nicely browned.

November is a month to be thankful! So first of all i am thankful that i changed the Halloween pics and music. As the picture clearly shows-we were all sick of them!
These pics are from our famly mini trip to Snowbird over Conference weekend. It was a great time-the kids swam outside while it was snowing! Thye loved it-I did not!

I am thnakful for my girls and how they always make me laugh! They were so excited to stick their heads in this thing. Who knew wodden cutout of german people would be such a hit!

I'm thankful for my wonderfu husband and all that he does for me! Without him i would be very sad, bored and unspoiled! This pic was taken at the top of snowbird. It was beautiful-but very cold!!!

I am thankful for my 3 year old. No, you did not read the past sentance wrong-thankful and 3 year old were in the same sentance. 3 makes us all laugh-alot. She loves to be the center of attention-but when she's mad-watch out (see bottom pic)
