Valentine M&M’s Cookies

I must really have Valentines on the brain this week, because this is the 4th Valentines post this week!  

There must be love in the air here!

Today I have these yummy M&M’s Valentine cookies.  This recipe has been in our family for a long time.  The name of these cookies on my recipe card is:  “Leora’s Chocolate Chip Cookies”  This is a nickname that I have had for my sister for a long time, I don’t really even remember where it came from, but I remember saying “Leora” in a mocking tone every time I called her that!  Some things just never go away, do they? 

Anyway, here is my version of these yummy cookies:

Swedish Tea Cakes

Yesterday I talked about all the different Christmas candies that I used to make with my mom when she was still here.  Today, I have a cookie recipe that I am sure a lot of you have made, but it is one that we used to make all the time just for Christmas!  These fun little morsels are so pretty on a plate and I am sure that is why my mom made them all of the time; they just look festive!

November 2013 Visiting Teaching Handout

This month for your visiting teaching message you will need to pick your favorite conference talk to discuss with your sisters, so I decided just to do a general card that you can hand out with any talk that you choose.  With it being November, I went with a “thankful” theme.  We all have many blessings that we need to be thankful for, one of them being the fact that we have a general conference twice a year with a living prophet to lead our church!  I love conference weekend and the wonderful spirit that I feel every time I listen to our leaders.

So with that being said, I hope that you can show your gratitude to your sisters for all of your blessings.
