Cookie time!

As I've already mentioned in my cookie party post, making sugar cookies with my family is one of my all time favorite holiday traditions. Today was the day all the kids gathered at my parents house to sprinkle away to our hearts delight!My mom always makes the dough a day or two ahead of time to allow it to chill. She uses the same dog eared recipe card that she's had for years. This recipe is the best!Before the cookie making began my sister gifted all the girls with these wonderful handmade aprons. So cute! Cookie making is definitely a family affair! This was baby Hans' first year watching the festivities. We even had awards, which just added to the fun!

Hope your celebrating with those you love!

I love the decorating of sugar cookies at the holiday.

I still haven't found a tried and true sugar cookie recipe though.

Merry Christmas!

Tons of fun! Zack and I are going to have to do that after the holidays because the big boys have commandeered the kitchen for big dinner plans for the next few days!

I have just come across your wonderful blog through Tara Frey's book and I've loved "strolling" through it. You have a delightful blend of family, art and thoughtfulness. I look forward to coming back!
