Merry Christmas, friends! I hope your day is filled with friends and family, a nice surprise or two under the tree and some pie (among other things). I am most excited to play a family game of Scrabble and sample my mom's Christmas cookies -- they aren't just any Christmas cookies. The recipe is an old family favorite, and I look forward to them all year long. It's a family tradition to decorate them together on Christmas Eve -- my mom has the best pictures of my brother and me as little bitty kids, covered in sprinkles and icing. And the table was so dirty that my dad would have to chip the dried icing off of it for over an hour. Ha! We're a little bit neater when we decorate cookies as adults. Do you guys have any Christmas traditions that you look forward to all year long?
I hope you all have a Merry Christmas, traditions and all.
