Gluten free Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

Weekends simply are my favorite! We always have time to do whatever, whenever.

Which probably will change with the holiday parties here and there! Still, they are something to look forward too!

We can even spend an hour throwing rocks into a river if we want too.

Now that the twins are old enough we like to take them to movies! If we have enough treats they are sure to sit through the whole thing. They always go for the arcade after to “hunt.”

On Sunday we make cookies.

Baylee NEVER lets me forget! She looks forward to it all week long.

She really does ask me everyday if it is Sunday.

Yesterday we made…
