Making Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Although I am no substitute for fun grandmas that the girls had to leave (we miss you grandma Kathy and grandma Karen!), I am trying to do some fun things with the girls when I can. The other day I stretched myself into unknown territory and did a....craft. As my mom can attest, I have zero crafty bones in my body. But my girls love crafts. So I looked up crafts you can do with empty egg cartons (therefore would be a free craft:) and made egg carton caterpillars:) I know, I know, pretty amazing;). Pictures to come. Another fun thing we did was make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. We had lots of fun and the cookies were yummy!
Mommy and her big helpers!

Just one more taste mommy?
Yes, we used some whole wheat flour so we could pretend the cookies were healthy:)

So adorable. I think I'll have to make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies now. I often used whole wheat flour so I can pretend it's healthy.

And applesauce for half the butter makes them practically a diet food! Right?! Of course the best part is the process of making them but its always a happy thing when they actually turn out edible or even good (which they did!)
