Every year for Christmas, I bake. It is what I do. And I do a lot. More than I need to for just us that’s for sure. But what is Christmas without a freezer full of cookies to lay out for guests and to give away as gifts?! This year, my mom sent me a set of gingerbread family cookie cutters. When my son saw these, he instantly proclaimed that it was baking day and went to get the bowl we use for cookies. There was no convincing him that I was already done all the baking I had planned on so we made gingerbread men and women and children.
That night, I sat down with my husband to ice the cookies and said that maybe I would bring some with me for the Christmas La Leche League party that I was going to the next day. The next thing I knew, there he was having decorated some cookies just right for the occasion!
I wish you and your families a very merry Christmas and much happiness in the year to come.
