Cookies....







Every year I enjoy making Christmas Cookies with my mom...but this year has been a *little* crazy and I hadn't had a chance to get anything made...so last Wednesday the kids and I made cookies...OK well I made a few and they ate a TON!! It was a messy wonderful time. I hope that this is one of the traditions my kids will always remember as they grow up...making Christmas cookies with mommy!! It's always been a memory I've treasure of time spent with my mom!!!:)
