220 Making cookies

 Cookie baking is an annual event in my house. I got up this morning at about 5:30 am, took a bath, started baking at 6:00am. I burned myself about 4 times, swept the floor about 6 times, wiped off the counters and stove about 10 times, and did 3 loads of dishes. I think buying cookies sounds good :)


 Of course, then I wouldn't get awesome moments like watching the kids dropping cookies on the sheets or licking frosting. (Or making anatomically correct gingerbread men.) IMG_5657

 We usually decorate the tree the day after Thanksgiving, but I was sick as a dog that day this year, so it was moved to cookie baking day. I'm wiped out. IMG_5692 IMG_5694

 My parents always get in on the action with us. I think my Dad was the first one to make "male" snowmen with 2 m&ms in a special place... IMG_5669
Not this year though. He's still in a lot of pain and awaiting news of how his "cavernous hemangioma" will be handled. I hope that he's still making cookies next year.

  1. That was a full day! Looks like lots of fun and yummy too. I could eat the head off of one of those bears! My instincts tell me your dad WILL be making cookies next year with all the special details.
