Fun With the Girls

Last year we started the tradition of an annual cookie bake. I, my best friends, my 2 daughters, and my daughter in law (and the grandbabies) get together, bake cookies, then split them up into different Christmas packages. We then take our packages and pass them out to people as a gift and way of saying thank you. The fellowship is good for us, the baking is fun, and the gifts are uplifting to others. This year I took cookies to the nursing home where my mom resides, to my brother who is down from Colorado to help take care of our dad, and to a neighbor whose husband has serious health problems. We ended up with 12 kinds of cookies this year and 2 types of candy. It was so much fun. It is a tradition I hope we carry on. So what are some of your Christmas traditions? btw: I made chocolate chip, oatmeal butterscotch, banana nut, and smores cookies. Two of those were new recipes for me.

That sounds like a wonderful tradition. I know if it were me I would try to make sure that tradition carries on for years to come.
