All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

YUMMY... Oatmeal Cookies!

I got this recipe from a friend of mine many years ago. For all those with the Bryan 1st Ward cookbook, it's Jen Welch's recipe (thanks, Jen!). But over the years, I have modified it, and maybe Jen has too, but as of now, I claim this recipe as mine!! LOL!! Just joking, if you want to copy the recipe, and claim it as yours, then go ahead! Except for Mrs. Fields, if she does it, I'm suing! Ok, another joke...
Oatmeal Cookies
1 c. butter Crisco
2 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. flour (and maybe 1/4 c. extra for later)
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. soda
2 c. quick oats
Mix Crisco & sugar. Add eggs, milk, vanila. Add flour (not 1/4 c.), salt, soda & oats. If batter is sticky, then add 1/4 c. flour.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (pictured above): Add 1/2 c.-1 c. raisins
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies: Add 12 oz. bag chocolate chips
Bake 375 for 8-10 minutes.
