CVS Trip

Not only was all this FREE but I also made a profit of $20. ecb!!!

Well I had no idea that Cvs started their sales on Saturday evening...Since this sale was so big they actually started it Saturday at 1pm at our CVS.

I was able to take advantage of the sale early thanks to my Mom and Sister calling me !! yay thanks!!

--Be aware that the ecb didn't print so they had to make them print which took a little time--

This will make tomorrow a little more relaxing. Just think no coupons to clip and no CVS run to make. This will be great to just stay home since the wind chills are suppossed to be -15 degrees BBBBBUUUUUUURRRRRRR!!

Huge CVS Week 12-21

I'm not even going to take the time to type all this out. But make sure you check it out here or here. You can also see the ad here. Thanks to Hot Coupon World and

Cookie Fun & Recipes

Yesterday afternoon we made cookies and lots of them! It seriously only took about 3 1/2 hours. Not that we rushed but I thought it would take a lot longer! Here's what we did, complete with recipes just in case you still need to do some holiday baking.

These are our Sugar Cookies. I know the kids went a little overboard with m&ms and choc. chips!

1 1/2 cups butter
2 cups white sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
5 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

Cream butter and sugar together then add eggs and vanilla.
Stir in flour, bak powder, and salt

Chill at least 1 hr.
roll out and cut. Bake at 400 for 6-8 min. Do not overbake

Makes aprox 5 dz. depending on the size of your cut outs
Frost, decorate, and enjoy!!

M&M cookies see recipe below

Chocolate chip cookies or M&M cookies
2 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter-softned (40 sec. in microwave)
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 eggs
2+ cups of choc. chips ( I use 1 bag) or use M&Ms or use both if you really feel like chocolate!!
I mix wet ingred. together in one bowl.
Mix dry ingred. together in another bowl. Then put dry ingred. into wet ingred. Mix
bake at 375 9-11 min.

Last is our cake mix cookies --these are soooo easy!
1 cake mix-- I like yellow or chocolate, but you can be creative
1 egg
2 Tablespoons water
1/3 cup oil
Mix together. spoon out into a mini muffin pan and smash in the middle. Fill with whatever goodies sound good...nuts, m&ms, chocolate chips...
bake at 350

I'd like to make some monster cookies and maybe my favorite oatmeal scotchies. We'll see if time and energy allows!
--So do you have a great cookie I need to try? Just leave me a comment with the recipe. Okay so you found my weakness...I LOVE COOKIES and could eat them all day long. I would pick a cookie (or two) over a candy bar any day!!
Have a great weekend

Luke chapter 9
Verses 23-27
Then he said to them all: If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole word, and yet lose it or forfeit his very self? If anyone is ashamed of me and my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in his glory and in the glory of the Father and of the holy angels. I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God."

Luke chapter 8

verses 16

"No one lights a lamp and hides it in a jar or puts it under a bed. Instead, he puts it on a stand, so that those who come in can see the light.

We need to let our light shine for Jesus and tell others about Him. This is hard in our everyday life but for me I think my biggest ministry is to show my children Christ EVERYDAY!
