This year, thankfully, I have had people around to help in keeping it up.
The number one person on this one:
My amazing sister Krystin.
She has also kept up this tradition, and it was Krystin who wanted to make sure this happened. It was she who planned out the activity bought the ingredients, made the dough, and baked all the cookies. She is an excellent baker BTW. She is one of the few among us with the patients and talent for it.
Mirah and Mom were excited and ready to cut out all the cookies. You see Mirah has been practicing and planning for this almost as much as Krystin. Ever since our visit home for Thanksgiving Mirah has been rolling out play dough and cutting out “cookies.” But she hasn’t been able to eat any of them so you can imagine how excited she was to get her hands dirty and tummy full of REAL cookies.
So the cookies were all cut and baked in the morning.
Then after church and dinner, it was cookie decorating time!
Mirah was all ready for this part too.
Lots of M&M’s for her.
