Devil Dog Cookies

Hubby had some family coming down to visit a bit ago. They only live a couple of hours away, but with everyone's schedule it is near impossible to find the time.

What started as a one person visit has ballooned into 15 people meeting for drink!
Can I tell you again just how excited we were?!

I love family, I am super close to mine...and I love that the girl child is getting to know the far away hubby side more and more every year.

There are cousins her age, and they are all fantastic kids! They were all raised as polite, sweet, caring human beings...and the fact that they are all cute as buttons doesn't hurt either!
