PS Sorry the photo sort of stinks of these cookies...they are eaten WAY too quickly in our house to capture the true essence of them! After all since these are oatmeal, I've been considering them a breakfast food.
by the way, don't you love "Pamma" as Pam's grandma name?! I do!

I have been so amazing blessed throughout my life to be close to my father's parents. I could not be happier that my husband has been able to know and love my grandmother. Since she has moved to Atlanta earlier this year we have been spoiled to see her constantly and spend this precious time with her. Friday we took Grandma out to her favorite dinner spot in ATL and even had a "sleep over" at our house! Happy 88th birthday Grandma! What amazing memories!
