Merry Christmas!!!

All the special request cookies have been made.

A special batch of personally decorated sugar cookies were completed this morning with a special little helper on the side.  Lots of jabbering, laughing and dough tasting was going on in the kitchen.

The certain special little helper couldn't keep his fingers off of cookies that we thought were finished with all their sugars and sprinkles

and kept adding his own little touches here and there. 

Now we are all sitting back waiting for tonight.  Sharing time with family and friends, eating yummy little snacks and sharing presents with one another.  Keeping things simple and making memories.  That's what it is all about.

Merry Christmas to you all!



  1. I hope you have a Blessed Christmas with your beautiful family Kar. Your tree looks beautiful and the cookies look so YUMMY!!!

  2. You describe your Christmas just as I strive to make ours. Quiet. Personal. Meaningful. Together. Making memories.

    Good stuff.

    I especially like the story about your Oma in your most recent post. She sounds like an amazing woman.

  3. Nothing like seeing children decorate Christmas cookies! And your tree is breathtaking.
    Happy Holidays!

  4. I'm all late, but Merry Christmas to you and yours! Those cookies look delicious and fun to make (with kids).
