Every year Liam and I bake & decorate cookies together before Christmas. It's been a tradition of ours since he was probably 1-1/2 years old. They may not be pretty, by the time they get every single type of sprinkles piled up on top of the other, but we have fun. And somehow they always taste good enough to disappear well before Christmas.
With the addition of Sara to our lives, we've had to adjust how we do some things. Last week we went to Grandma's, and invited cousins over to help, so that Grandma could help out with the kids. I brought most of the ingredients to Grandma's and mixed it all together. Then Liam and cousin Jaidyn helped cut out Christmas shapes from the dough. My cousin Jack, who is just two months older than Liam, joined us to help with the decorations. And of course, everyone got to sample one (or more) when we were done. True to tradition, even though they were left at Grandma's house, they all managed to disappear before Christmas again.
Thanks Grandma Cindy, for letting us move to your place this year. Thanks Jack & Jaidyn (and Uncle Matt) for helping us decorate. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
