Cookies & Traditions

Yesterday, my little girl made her first batch of Christmas cookies! She was so excited to help Grandma cut out each of the delicate little cookies. It was so cute watching her as she pushed down on the little cookie cutters and used all of her concentration to make sure she was very careful to be gentle when pulling them off to put on the pan. And the highlight of the event was the sprinkling of the sugar on the tops of each cookie. She got a little sugar happy with a few of the cookies, so they were extra sweet!

I think this is such a great tradition to start with the girls, and it should be very entertaining as the years go by. I hope that it will be something that they will continue to remember and enjoy, and maybe continue with their own kids.

"What an enormous magnifier is tradition! How a thing grows in the human memory and in the human imagination, when love, worship, and all that lies in the human heart, is there to encourage it." ~ Thomas Carlyle
