A Christmas Tradition

Christmas traditions are things people do every year that make it feel like Christmas to them!

One of the things our family does is decorate a whole lot of cookies. We don't go for fancy, but we do have fun! 

This year we made about 150 sugar cookies. Even with that many, I still have to bring them out slowly, so they'll last until Christmas Day.

I asked my photography-loving daughter to take pictures of the festivities.

We had someone new join us this year. Of course, she was more than happy to photograph him, too! 

We try not to eat too many cookies while we decorate. One year, we discovered the twins were licking the knives and dipping them back in the frosting. We didn't give those cookies to guests!

They're much more serious about their decorating now.

Some of the frosting and sprinkles can get pretty wild.

This guy usually comes up with a few combinations that surprise us!

It all works out in the end though and no cookie is left uneaten!

A delicious, special tradition that we look forward to every year!

Merry Christmas from our house to yours! May all your traditions bring you closer to the ones you love!
