I had someone comment on a Facebook post for my perfect pumpkin pie the other day that they are “so sick” of pumpkin.  Well congrats kiddos!  Thanksgiving and Halloween are a thing of the past and now it’s time for all the things CHRISTMAS!

Did you guys have a good holiday weekend?

I was talking to some of my friends, the wonderful friends who have little kids just like me so every text contains information that you can relate to on the deepest most visceral level. They can just send me a poop emoji and I know what kind of day they are having, lol!

Our Thanksgiving weekend was wonderful, but packed with tons and tons of things.  All with people we loved doing things we loved, but busy non the less.  And it made me realize that our extended family most often sees my kids under the circumstances of them being tired, hungry, and over stimulated.  Which I’m sure makes it seem like I’m a stellar mom.  But do you think that’s how it is for most toddlers? Like their cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents see them at their absolute worst.

Geez. Good thing my family loves me.

As we were leaving my dad’s house on Thanksgiving, an unnapped, overstimulated, starving Piper was screaming bloody murder because I wouldn’t let her have more Pecan Pie. She was screaming super hard until she got to my dad as we made our rounds of goodbyes. Then she jumped in his arms squeezed him super hard and said, “Bye Bopa.” {heart melts} And then her temper tantrum was totally over.

Thanksgiving miracle.

So if you are a grandparent, specifically my father, thank you for quelling temper tantrums and for cutting your child some slack, as surely this is your grandchild at their very worst. Not standard operating cuteness.

But nothing can get you past the exhaustion over a holiday weekend like cookies. Chocolate cookies. That are made with cake mix and are CRAZY easy to make.  These cookies are all over the internet, but I adapted my recipe from here.  This is really no stroke of genius, I just went with chocolate cake mix and added some peppermint. And here we have a crazy delicious cookie that is super soft.  Plus I put my very popular vanilla frosting on top and they are insanely amazing.

You’re welcome.  Happy Monday, peeps.
