"Begin today and write in it your goings and comings, your deepest thoughts, your achievements and your failures, your associations and your triumphs, your impressions and your testimonies. I promise you that if you will keep your journals and records, they will indeed be a source of great inspiration to you, each other, your children, your grand-children and others throughout the generations. Remember, the Savior chastised those who failed to record important events." --President Spencer W. Kimball

Pouha Sisters Annual Cookie Party!

Ok, so I know this post is way overdue....but I couldn't leave it out of my blog! Thanks to the beautiful Po'uha sisters: Lelu, Christina & Loyann....we had a wonderful turn out at their annual cookie-swap party! This little get-together is getting quite popular and this year because of all the people that were going to attend, we each had to make 20 dozen cookies..... yep, you read it right..... 20 dozen! We all had to sign up for the kind of cookie we were going to make so that we would have a variety of different kinds to share..... the last time I attended this party I made pumpkin chocolate-chip cookies....but wanted to try something different, something new that I'd never tried before. I saw this cookie in a magazine that looked so delicious....so I grabbed the recipe and that was going to be my cookie! It's called the polka-dot cookie....a chocolate mint-chip cookie. The first time I ever made it was for the party...so I was hoping they turned out ok! hahaha

Here r my cookies in progress..... the dough

On the tray b4 hitting the oven...
And ta-da....the final product! They turned out awesome!!

The party was so much fun! Much needed woman-time with other ladies/mothers/friends... the Pouha sisters went all out with decorations, games...and they even had home-made soup for their bread bowl soups! Lelu made this cheese-chicken-broccli soup and it was SO delicious! We sat and visited and talked and at the end of the night we all left with 20 dozen different kinds of cookies.....it was so much fun! Thank you Pouha sisters! Until next year! :)

There were so many cookies we had to set up 3 long tables for them all to fit
