A Sweet Thank you to Our Veterans

It's Veteran's Day today. How can we say thank you in a meaningful way to the men and women who sacrifice for our country?
I think I'll just say thank you in the best way I know how, which means....cookies.
Tonight the charges and I (with Grandma and Grandpa) will drop off cookies to our neighborhood veterans. We have some brave and noble WWII vets just around the corner. I think we'll make these and these.
We'll also drop off cookies to the veteran's widows. I think they deserve it too, don't you?
If you have time, whip up a batch and follow suit.
Have a wonderful day and a huge, heartfelt thanks to those who fight for our freedom.
