Snicker Yummy Doodles!!!!!!!

I LOVE the Holidays....the lights, the tree, giving gifts and just really remembering how AWESOME my family is!!! But I also love all the treats...cookies, fudge, cakes, cookies and more cookies. So when the cookie season hits there is always one cookie that I must make no matter what.....Snickerdoodles. However it wasn't till last year when I stumbled upon a recipe on my friends Blog that really amped my usual Snickerdoodle recipe to a whole new level.

These cookies will melt in your mouth....by the time you put them out you will have to turn around and make a new batch! It's a good thing I have been going to the gym because I have eaten these for all three meals and then some (really nutritious right!).

SO get ready to have your taste buds blown away ( I just got a very disturbing vision of what it would look like if your taste buds really did get blown away). But anyway on to the COOKIES!
Oh My don't these look Divine!!!!

 Cinnamon...it really makes your house smell like Christmas!!!!

 Start by creaming together 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of softened butter.

 Next add in 1 egg and 1/2 tsp. of vanilla.

 In a separate bowl combine 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1/4 tsp of baking soda, and 1/4 tsp cream of tarter.
 Combine the flour mixture with the butter mixture until it makes a nice soft dough. So EASY!

In a small bowl add 2 tbs. of sugar and 2 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon......this is where the magic is!

 Take your dough and shape it into 1 inch balls.....a special thanks to my assistant Keegan!

 Roll it around in the sugar/cinnamon until it's coated.

 Place your cookies on to a greased cookie sheet or parchment paper. Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes and let them sit for a minute or two after you take them out.


Then Enjoy, Stuff, Nibble ......Whatever tickles your fancy:)

Busy Busy Nesbits

I first off have to apologize to all my blogging friends....I have FAILED you!!!!! It has been two weeks since I have been on here but I have been attacked by boxes, tape, Christmas Shopping, and three very busy boys!

When I say boxes and tape I refer to moving boxes and packing tape......that's right we are on the move again...next stop Tunica, MS.

We are getting ready to move closer to my in-laws for a short while until the next job starts up in TN. I can't tell you how excited I am to move......we are going to be closer to family and it's going to be ten times warmer there.

 Look at all that SNOW!!!!
It looks like everything got blasted by snow.....and it is sooooooo cold here. Michigan in the winter seems like a nice tropical get away compared to this North Dakota winter. Believe me when I tell you this little momma will not be missing this!!!!!

So bear with me, we are moving Friday and after that I promise you I will be back on top of my game!!!!!

Thanks for your patience.

Hey Where Did You Get That Hat??????

Isn't that the sweetest face you have ever seen? Awe my sweet Lennon Boy....but that is not the reason why we are here, the reason is the hat. This hat has been getting a ton of attention...every where we go I have people asking me "Where did you get such a cute hat"?  

 Another shot of Lennon in his hat with Santa....even Santa wanted to know where we got his hat because Ms. Claus would be interested....

Lennon driving Miss Daisy around with his Rudolph Hat:)

So to Answer every one's question...I have a friend who makes these hats! She makes owls, puppies, snowmen, turtles and they are all so CUTE!!!! So if you have a little one that needs a gift for Christmas or just want to buy one for the sake of having a cute hat you can buy them on my friend Mackenzie's Etsy Shop

* By the way if you have never been to Etsy....you may need to set aside a few hours because you will need it to look through all the Awesome stuff on there:)

Happy December!
