As we get ready for that all important day "Christmas" with the dinners, visiting, gift giving and sharing lots of memories..................we won't forget to give thanks for all of these things that we enjoy doing, our families, our friends and also remembering the armed forces that keep us safe and pray that they stay safe too.
And this is a good time of year to consume as many cookies as you can! Cookies have no calories at Christmas time, did you know that??
My daughter Christa, daughter in law Jenn and myself had our traditional day of cookie baking. Now we take our baking very serious. My kitchen turns into a Christmas cookie bakery with 12 cookie recipes, 11 baking pans, 10 cups of flour, 9, cups of sugar, 8 teaspoons of vanilla, 7 measuring cups, 6 measuring spoons, 5 golden towel, 4 dozen egg, 3 kitchen aide mixers, 2 spatulas and a enough cookies to last till Christmas day!
Yes, that table is filled with all the cookies we baked and then some! To name a few.......
