Let's bake pumpkin stuff! These soft Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies are so perfect to bake for fall, right? We love these anytime of year and trust me, they don't last long, not even an hour. They are crazy good moist and yummy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
I love the fallish-orange color of these babies!
And....Speaking of babies, I'm officially a "Mimi" (my official name) a.k.a grandma!
Grace Rose Howell was born on September 9 and she's as precious as precious can be! I love my little angel so much! She's my little punkin. 😉 Which brings us to pumpkin cookies, right?? See how this all fits together?
I'll have to make multiple trips to Florida to visit and get my baby Grace 'fix'! But, I will have to leave her on Thursday, so trying to spend every minute I can with this little peanut. Everyone is doing fine! Grace is a one very lucky girl! Everyone loves her!
She has already brought so much joy to our family! I'm so blessed beyond words! Thanks Justin and Lauren! Can you tell I'm excited?
When Grace is older, we can make these cookies together and bake, bake away! In the meantime, enjoy these 'babies' with a cold glass of milk! Now, I need to get back to my sweet little punkin'! 🙂
