So if these two little munchkins want Christmas cookies with frosting, this Mom is probably going to deliver. :)
There's just no way around the fact that we associate holidays with foods (and drinks). It's one of the best parts of the season. Certain foods make me think of my family and my own childhood. It will be the same for my children. They'll remember these nights of movies and cookies and playing on the floor together. Certain special foods will bring back memories for them when they've grown.
My aunt's mother-in-law makes the best Christmas cookies ever. Every year during the holiday season, she invites the women of her family (and some friends) to her house and they bake four to five hundred cookies. Can you imagine! It takes them two days. They have it down to an art. I think that's just a beautiful thing. Baking is extra special when there's the love of family and friendship added into the mix.
Does your family have traditions like that? It sounds fun to me!
