Day 258 – Holiday Cookies

18 Dec

I shopped, I cleaned, I finished a present project, but most importantly I helped my mom with the massive amounts of candy she makes every year for our wonderful family and friends. We stirred, blended, baked, and yes we sampled all the yummies. I mean we had to right? You have to know what kind of product you are putting out there into the world. It is very much a tradition for my mom to supply is all with candy each year and it is always fun to be involved in the process. I have lots of photos to share which I will be doing over the next few days. The first set is my from scratch chocolate chip cookies πŸ™‚

What are some of your favorite traditions during the holidays?

    Ok Mindy, you are not playing fair. You got my mouth watering and you have all the cookies!

    I like my tree, the personal ornaments, seeing the lights when I walk in the room or drive down the driveway. I miss my mom baking so many different delicious cookies and giving them with love. Please give your mom an extra long hug for me. ❀

      That is one thing I don’t really have, personal ornaments. I have a few but my tree is very impersonal. Makes me a little sad now lol I need to change that tradition.

      Thank you doll!

    Oh my mouth is watering! those cookies look fabulous. Stockings are a Christmas tradition in our house, we all contribute to them rather than giving a lot of gifts. Everyone puts something in everyone else’s stocking – or lately the colourful paper gift bags! And everyone HAS to get chocolate, an apple, a huge navel orange, a tangerine and some nuts.
    Most of all Christmas means family to me!
