When we were little, my cousins who were a couple of years older than me would come over often. Since we lived with my grandma, they would come over to visit with her, but always ended up staying longer to play with me and my sisters. We would play with dollhouses indoors, scooters outdoors, or fill up our plastic pool with water and take a little swim. It was so much fun and we have so many awesome memories.
The best part about those days is that they always ended the same: with cookies. My mom and aunt would get in the kitchen and bake us our favorites: frosted oatmeal cookies. We always loved their oatmeal cookies more than anyone else’s because they added that detail of frosting them that we had never tried anywhere else. It gave it an extra dose of sugar which I am sure they knew we did not need, but they did it for us because we loved them so much. Well, time has passed, my cousins do not visit as often, I am married and not living at home anymore, and so many other things have changed. But still, once every couple of months, we all get together and bond over frosted oatmeal cookies.
