Cookies to send


Recommended Posts

I don't talk much about my sons.. I have two sons in the Army. #1 son is back in california for 1 year in advanced arabic. #2 son is now serving his second tour in the middle east. His first tour last year was in Afghanistan, this tour is in Iraq. This son is an RN.


#2 son wants cookies, cookies and more cookies!!! ya think he likes cookies?


so if anyone has a favortie cookie recipe I would love to make them and send them to him. I will be posting recipes I send so others can try new recipes. I mean I can't send the same recipe each week.


Did I mention he wants cookies every week? and have I mentioned I have to send enough for everyone?

he will love it. he hasn't sent his address yet, I emailed him but who knows what access he has.


He will send a letter (manditory) to parents with address. I know his last tour it was 3 months before we found out where he was.

That is a long time before knowing where he is. It didn't take that long when Jerry went over. I think he called either us or his wife within a day of getting over there.


Being an RN might make a lot of difference though, as he will be busy if there are any people needing help.


I'll be praying for his safety, Wes.
