OK so who doesn't love a great Chocolate Chip cookie AND who doesn't love a great Double Stuffed Oreo???? Well, why not combine the both and create this.....
I made them last night for a football party and everyone there was talking about them!
First, let me be really honest with you, they are extremely time consuming and a pain to make, but so worth it:) It takes a lot of flour on your hands to form the cookie around the oreo because the dough is a bit sticky!
I also have to say that I have stocked away the chocolate chip recipe in my favorite recipes because they were by far the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. i made a batch of just the cookies themselves! YUM YUM!
And not just because I made them. Chris is very critical about the food I make and he loved them!

2. Buy a styrofoam wreath/circle
3. Simply wrap your ribbon around your styrofoam until you have it the way you want it. I used push pins to hold mine in place until I was sure it was where I wanted it to be! Then hot glue the pieces down once you have it perfectly the way you want it!
4. Choose one piece of ribbon to be your hanger. Wrap it and tie it at the top! And as Kendall says DUHHH all done!!
This week is our big in state rival game against UofK! It's a toss up but I sure hope we can beat them!! Go Cards!!!

I took these pictures of Kendall last year on September 11 and wanted to share them again, because this year it hit me that 9/11 will be any other day to my daughter and many other children out there.
I was talking to a good friend Friday night about how I read to my students September 12 We Knew Everything Would Be Alright, which was written by a group of first graders soon after 9/11 occured. Those students were my students age when this terrible act of terrorism happened to our country.
One of my students raised his hand and said Mrs. Wallace I wasn't born until 3 years AFTER 9/11/01 and I thought oh my he is so right. 9/11 is to them as Pearl Harbor is to me. I don't mean this offensively but I don't have the feelings about Pearl Harbor as I do 9/11 and I'm sure my students and my daughter will never have those feelings about 9/11 as I do.
I didn't live Pearl Harbor.
I lived 9/11.
My students and Kendall didn't live 9/11.
I was a senior in high school when 9/11 occured and a naive senior was I. I had no clue the impact that 9/11 had on so many families. Ok I knew the impact it had, but I didn't know the emotions or the feelings that were felt.
The older I get the more emotional I get on this day every year. I think it's me getting older and having a child and reading about children that never met their fathers and how I can't imagine what their mothers have gone through or even think about Chris not being here with Kendall and I. It makes me cry everytime I even think about it. Not for me but for them. I cry because so many, many people were affected this day in so many ways.
Today I am reminded more than ever to be greatful for the life that I live.
To be proud of the country that I live in.
To love the red, white, and blue with all my heart.
And to thank the millions upon millions that have fought for our country for so long.
And to mourn the loss of millions who have died for our freedom.
I love our country and couldn't be prouder to say in live in the USA today!!

4:00AM came and she started screaming again! Let me remind you that Kendall is a GOOD sleeper. At about 4 months I started putting her to bed on her own and she has gone to sleep and slept through the night since then. But, does have a moment every few months.
Well when she woke up at 4:00AM she was screaming like she was in awful pain so I brought her back to our room. She fell back asleep and I tried to put her in her bed again at 5:00AM and as soon as I laid her down she woke up screaming again. So, back to my room we went until 7:00AM when she was awake for the day:)
We are pretty convinced that she has a LOT of teeth trying to come in all at once. I know this to be true now because tonight when I was tickling her I could see two teeth opposite of each other in the middle back of her gums at the top. They have barely made their way through but they are coming! And thank goodness for that.
These teeth have sure been a pain for my poor baby, and I will be so glad when they all make their way through!
Either way I still love her too death and can't believe how stinkin' big she is!!
Hope you are enjoying your weeked!
