Chocolate Chip Scones

I have to say that I absolutely enjoy the mornings in my house, the ratchet of my kids getting ready in the morning, the noise of my 5 year old Christopher laughing and running after my two chihuahuas, my 8 year old Mei-Li following my 13 year old NellyBe around, Nellybe complaining about Mei-Li and my 12 year old Ana running up and down the stairs trying to get ready, the house just feels completely empty as soon as they are goan to school.  Most of the time I eat breakfast by myself, but today my hubby decided to accompany me during breakfast, he is out of the house everyday around 5 am so we don't get to eat breakfast together very often.  Wilson is a Sergeant in the US Army so when he is able to eat breakfast with me or the kids is very special, I decided to make one of his favorite SCONES.  The first time i made the scones was a year ago for a PTA breakfast at my children's school, the teachers loved them.  My husband was my helper he tasted all the different scones i made, i think he gained about 3 lbs after eating almost half of the batch of scones I made.  I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as my husband Wilson those.
