Do you love a good Oatmeal Cookie?
I combined some of my favorite things in these Oatmeal Butterscotch Toffee Cookies. They are not only super moist and have a great flavor, but they are also crunchy and chewy. It knew I had a hit with these cookies when my oldest daughter told me she liked them better than chocolate chip cookies, and she loves chocolate chip cookies. These are also my husbands favorite cookies.
My hilarious experience with an automatic car wash yesterday.
This story has nothing to do with these cookies, but it was hilarious so I had to share it. After dropping my daughter off at school, I stopped by the grocery store. I wanted to pick up some ingredients to bake cookies. My son, Casey’s baseball team, is playing in the regional playoffs this weekend. My special needs son, Caleb, loves to bake cookies to share with the team after the games. The team loves Caleb’s cookies and Caleb enjoys baking and sharing them.
After leaving the store, I stopped to get a car wash. I pulled in the automatic car wash, and it started soaping my car. It completely soaped half of my car and stopped. I waited 2 minutes and then 3 minutes. Finally, I decided to leave. I had soap completely on one side of my car and pollen on the other side. I turned my wipers on to wipe away the suds so I could see. My son, Caleb, was with me. He has cerebral palsy seizures and selective mutism. He was busting out loud laughing at our situation. We pulled up to a red light. A man in a pickup truck in front of us had his window down. We saw him completely hang his head out his window to see what was on our Suburban. When we got on the main road, soap suds were flying everywhere. By that time, we had everyone looking at us. I was teasing Caleb and told him to put his sunglasses on and duck, but he was laughing so hard he could not move. Yes! We finally made it to another car wash. God also allowed Caleb and I to experience a hilarious moment that we will never forget.
Proverbs 17:22 (NIV)
A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.

I believe the secret to building stronger families that stick together, communicate more, and love each other is to cook together, eating around the table together, play together, vacation together, and share God’s love.
