Today our big item on the "To Do" list was cutting out, baking, and decorating Christmas cookies to give to neighbors. My girlfriend, Jennifer, has a great sugar cookie recipe that she shared with me and though it is not as easy to roll out, the taste is well worth the hassle! It was hard to wait overnight for the dough to chill in the refrigerator.
I love going to the mailbox the week of Christmas and seeing all the Christmas cards with family pictures. We decorate a garland in our entryway will all the cards we receive and then after Christmas all the family pictures move to a board in our kitchen.
