Happy Birthday Norris! (and some yummy cookies:)

This is what's going on outside right now. Happy Birthday Norris, the first snow's for you!:) We are celebrating with dinner and relaxing tonight!

These are the addictive Andes mint cookies. I got them from the Sister's Cafe blog, and then I melted some semisweet chocolate squares (with a touch of veg oil to make it easier to drizzle) to put on top. YUM! I might have had a few already today...
