Last week was very busy with a Christmas dinner, a youth group meeting, a Cantata and a Homeschool Parent night for our co-op. Whew! It was fun, but I'm glad all those things are checked off and done.
We also had a moment of quiet to enjoy some cookie-making with the kids. I was thankful that this year's dough event went smoothly, and everyone enjoyed themselves.
In past years, I either:
a. made the cookies myself
b. didn't make cookies
c. ended up in a foul mood while making cookies
You know... having to listen to bickering about who gets the rolling pin first, which cookie cutter is better, 'he made more than I did', etc etc etc. Sort of squelches the festive mood!
This year there was none of that! We only made 1 type ~ Cocoa Spice ~ our favorite. Sometimes we decorate them with marbled icing but mostly they remain simple and unadorned. Their appeal is more their taste than their prettiness. Very good with coffee. Full and spicy!
