Keeping up the tradition
Ever since I was a little girl, I remember making sugar cookies with my Grandma Joyce. Since I was the only grandchild for about 6 years, and then there were a few years after that when I was the only one old enough to help, that meant that I got to make a lot of cookies. We usually left out a few for Santa, and then enjoyed the rest of them over the next few days. It's a tradition that I think of fondly, and I have decided to start with my own kids. Over the last 2 days, Will and I have probably made over 2 dozen cookies. I'm not sure if there will be any left for Santa next week, considering both Bill and Will enjoy my baking a little too much, and a lot of them will end up being gifts for friends, but I'm looking forward to doing this every year with my kids and maybe even my own grandkids someday.
