Mint Chocolate Cookies!

 Oh my, these cookies were a hit!
I went to the pantry to see what kind of cookies I could come up with for a women's church gathering.
I saw a pre~made sugar cookie mix and a bag of Andes from the holidays!
Humm, you think? Lets give it a try!
I added 1 stick of butter and 1 egg to the cookie mix. 
After mixing, I added 3/4 of a bag of Andes chips.
Dropped by a heaping teaspoon on a cookie sheet and 
baked at 350 degrees about 11 minutes.
They turned out so nice and round. Batch made 24 cookies.
Yummy to the tummy and smiles from some happy women!
Easy breezy!

Sisters Called To Serve!

As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
~Joshua 24:15

I just had to share some exciting news with you!
My two oldest grandchildren Ashley and Kelsey whom are sisters are going on missions for 
our church The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
These sweet granddaughters are 17 months apart. They will leave on the same day and return 18 months later on the same day.
They are such sweet girls and we know they will serve the Lord with a happy heart!
Ashley will serve in the Texas Houston South Mission
and 
Kelsey will serve in the Washington Kennewick Mission.
Both of their missions are Spanish speaking!

They are very close. 
Sunday was their farewell at church and open house in their home.
My daughter Shelli's dear friend Sarah S. made these amazing cupcakes! 
~
There was tons of food but the cupcakes were my favorite!
Shelli even made a candy bar!
The house had Texas and Washington colors and memorabilia everywhere!
It was a beautiful day!
 Ashley and Kelsey, 
I love you to pieces and will miss you like crazy! 
I know there are many people waiting to hear the Lords plan
 and will open their doors for you with open arms.
God be with you until we meet again...in 18 months!
You are my hero's!
