Cooking Up Family Fun

Year four of our family tradition of making Christmas cookies with Nana, Papa, and Auntie Jenny. This year was the biggest yet, since we knew that Uncle Tom, Auntie Molly, Tommy and Stella would be here soon to celebrate and that there needed to be plenty of sweets to go around.  The cookies were delicious and no one was disappointed!  In fact, they were so good, I was so busy eating them that I forgot to take a photo!  How did that happen?  We had four cookie sheets full!

We got together the Sunday before Christmas to decorate.  It was a lot of fun, even if we paid the price later for two kids on serious sugar highs and then the inevitable crash that followed!

 Looking at those pictures I can’t believe how big they are, especially Em.  I tried to make time to really make the season special, and I think it definitely paid off.  The kids were so aware and eager to celebrate every element of Christmas; it made me smile to share in their wonder, especially the sugar-coated moments!

I didn’t take as many pictures as usual because the kids were needier and actually required supervision–aka we had to make sure they didn’t eat every single cookie in sight or dump the contents of the all the trimmings onto their plates–but I did capture a bit of the fun!    Em was sitting across from me so I got more shots of her, but I promise Jax was there and was enjoying himself as much as the rest of us!

Love having family nearby, especially at the holidays!  More holiday photos to come!
