Chocolate Chip Cookie Day

I was looking through my past years on Facebook I noticed two things… sick children and cookies!Image may contain: 1 person, sitting

Today is national chocolate chip cookie day. Soooo I made cookies. I picked Colby up early from school. They were having field day this afternoon and decided that he would be better of coming home to rest instead. So when I got home I began making the homemade fish sticks for dinner and chocolate chip cookies.
