My World and Welcome to It!

These are my thoughts and opinions about life in general. I also get daily prompts from DSP which inspire me to write. If I throw in some scrapbook pages I've done, photos I've taken, and stories about me, you will have an idea about my loony life!

Sharing a Special Activity with My Mom

At first, when I thought about this topic, I didn't think I shared anything with my mom. But then I remembered that we made Christmas cookies together each year. We pressed the dough through an old cookie press and made different shapes. After that, we would decorate them with sprinkles. Some of these would be given away as gifts and the rest we would just eat during the Christmas season. We did this every year until I went away to college. When my daughters were old enough, I tried to continue the same tradition. We would give the police and firemen cookies for Christmas each year. Now, the girls have their own homes and I'm usually stressed out and getting behind with all my "have-to's" so I don't do this any more. Maybe I will this year.

What a wonderful memory! My kids are really starting to get into cooking and baking with me too. What a fun tradition!

Oh, we had a similar tradition and now my daughter and I decorate cookies the same way! This brought a smile to my face!

What a great thing to do! I make sugar cookies with the boys for the holidays.
