Sunday Afternoon and Snickerdoodles

There's nothing better than a Sunday afternoon and Snickerdoodles!
I've got a batch in the oven right now!
*See the recipe at the end of this post.

While waiting for the cookies to bake, I was inspired to share with you what's been happening this week. On Tuesday we went back to our "hometown" where our parents still live. We love going home and have missed living there for the last 17 years. It's hard to believe it has been that long! We enjoyed visiting with our parents and being back at "home" for a few days. Thanks Mom and Dad for the delicious meals and for taking such good care of us. We returned to Houston on Friday afternoon, and our oldest daughter came here to see us! She spent the night with us, and then we all went to our niece's High School Graduation. At the graduation we enjoyed seeing family and friends, and following the graduation we were treated to a real Texas barbeque at the home of the graduate. Last night after we got home, we enjoyed a boiled shrimp dinner which was delicious. Now the oven is beeping and the snickerdoodles are ready!
I wonder what surprises this new week will bring?
