Last night was our annual Christmas cookie night. Brad brought this tradition from his childhood and I have come to love it! It just wouldn’t be Christmas without making over 5 dozen sugar cookies and decorating them. I so enjoy giving them to neighbors and sharing some of our talented cookie decorating skills. There is definitely an art form to decorating cookies! Anyway, Allison has enjoyed this tradition since she could walk and this year she was really into it. She wanted lots and lots of flour to roll her dough in and always needed the rolling pin on hand. We cut out mittens, angels, Christmas trees, gingerbread men, snowflakes and cupcakes (for Jesus’ birthday). Allison and Will waited so patiently for the cookies to cook and cool so that they could decorate them and of course eat some. Allison was sweet and made a cookie for most of the family members. As the Christmas music played in the background, I tried to soak up the moment. I love the stage Allison and Will are in and I never want to forget how special this time is.
The finished product! I think we made around 8 dozen.
