Peanut Butter Cookies

Peyton and I made the easiest peanut butter cookies yesterday afternoon.  My dad made them over the weekend for a cookout so I the baby was obviously craving them and I’m telling you, they are SO easy!  Which is the goal when baking with kids, right?!

  • Ingredients:
    • 1 box yellow cake mix
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/2 cup oil
    • 1 cup peanut butter
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all ingredients and spoon onto cookie sheets.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Times vary so check frequently (I had used 3 cookie sheets and the best ones were baked for 14 minutes but my dad said his didn’t need to bake as long so it depends on the oven!).

I don’t have any pictures of an easy breakfast with cute Easter jammies this year.  Our church moved their first service from 8:30 to 7:30 for Easter so we were all pretty rushed to get out the door on time.  But the service was good – I always love the songs we sing on Easter.  And then we came back home for Peyton to open her Easter basket (bath toys, bubbles, summer clothes, and 1 piece of chocolate) and do a quick Easter egg hunt before Aunt Amanda needed to get to the airport.

Pregnancy #2 Update

I haven’t posted a single update for this pregnancy and I feel really bad.  Not necessarily for any of you readers but mostly for our little one!  Who knows how long I’ll continue to blog but I don’t want this little baby to feel neglected when she reads through my blog to see several updates throughout Peyton’s pregnancy but only one – at 32 weeks! – of her pregnancy.  So this might be a lengthy post but stick with it!  If you’re interested. :)
