Sweet 16 and Cookies!

Happy Thanksgiving Eve!  We worked 1/2 day today which was FABULOUS!  It gave me a chance to come home, finish up today’s baking, and clean the entire house!  Now I’m about to wrap the Christmas presents that I have already!  Yay!

Sunday, one of my girls from church had a surprise Sweet 16 birthday party!  It’s hard to believe that these girls are already 16 years old!  I’ve taught them since they were in 4th grade and I love them oh so much! :0)





She had no idea!


Me with the Birthday girl!


As a JOKE, they tried to make it a “19th” Birthday party since the restaurant we were eating at was only doing “Brunch” and if they were older, it could have been a “Champagne Brunch”!  Haha!  (None of us drink, by the way…obviously they don’t! lol)


More of my peeps! :0)


Amazing!  French Dip sandwich with Sweet Potato Fries!  Oh yes! The food was really good!  I’d love to go back! :0)


If you know Emma at all, you know she loves to eat!  Especially candy!!!


What did I tell you?  Haha!


Even more candy!!!


Time for cake!


The group!

Also, this past weekend, I tried Oh She Glows’ recipe for Pumpkin Pie Banana Chunk Oatmeal Cookies! 

They were delicious!


I’m not a huge pumpkin fan but these were REALLY good! I love how her recipes have no refined sugar in them-therefore, these cookies weren’t incredibly sweet!  They were perfect!


Check out the recipe!  It’s a perfect Thanksgiving treat! :0)

I’ve also made a few of her recipes for Thanksgiving but I’ll have to post pictures of those after tomorrow! :0) 

Hope everyone enjoys their Turkey Day!  We have SO MANY reasons to be THANKFUL! 

I am SO BLESSED!  :0)
