Cookies with Cade

I got home from work today to be greeted by my sweet little nephew Cade sitting in my dogs crate eating a banana Laffy Taffy. Of course we did NOT put him in there, but every time he comes over we just can't keep him away from it. :) Kim (my sis) needed my husbands help with some invitations so I of course took advantage of having a little time to myself with Cade. I decided it was time to introduce him to the world of baking. What better way to start than Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies. These are a family favorite probably because they have every great cookie in one (Nestlé Milk Chocolate Chips, peanut butter, oatmeal, brown/white sugar). Cade had me drag over a chair and we went to work. His sweet little hands made me a nervous reck with my favorite William Sonoma measuring cups but we made it work. Just like his Aunt Missy, his favorite part was the KitchenAid mixer. While the dough was chilling in the refrigerator we paused for some dinner. With Cade in the house it was the perfect night for some Kraft Mac & Cheese and Fish Sticks. After dinner Uncle Miles played with cade ON THE REFRIGERATOR and Kim entertained Jada while I put the cookies on to bake. Warm Cookies and Milk topped of the eventful night with the Phillips.

 I LOVE MY NEPHEW and can't wait to meet my niece Harper Grace in May.
