Cookies and Company

My brother just finished training in the National Guard. He and his wife and son stopped at our house on their way home from Texas. Like a good hostess, I took one look at how ripped my soldier-brother has become {and skinny his cutie wife is!} and made them these Key Lime Meltaway Cookies
Like a bad hostess, I then proceeded to eat most of them myself. :) We had a great time playing Acquire and watching movies. My brother even went running with me {though he had to practically slow to a walk in order to accommodate my snail's pace!} It was a lovely visit, and I can't wait to see them again soon. Hopefully, next time we'll have a camera handy.

YUMMMM! I am going to have to make these . . . maybe tonight. Thanks for the idea. AND - wow, congrats on the 9 miles. I don't think I could sprint 9 feet at the moment. Amazing how far you've come so fast!

Acquire...I'm glad someone else loves it like I. My problem? Finding anyone who still has it AND is willing to play it. I love that you do!

P.S. When Alex from the NYTimes phoned tonight I told him about your video of the balloon launch. Don't be surprised if he contacts you!
