Tis the Season for Cookies

Well, here we go again.  I start a blog and fall swiftly and deeply in love, then my commitment begins to wane and eventually it sits here sad and ignored.  I'm sorry, blog.  I'll always come back to you.

I'm going to go ahead and pull the "it's been so busy around here card", because in truth, it really has.  My favorite months of the year are October, November and December; I feel like they FLY past me, though.  Just when I think I've got some control of my life, I turn around and Christmas is over and the decorations are already down.  2013 is days away.  It's madness.

While I'd love to present a beautiful timeline of how the last month has gone, that would require so much more energy than the last few days have left me with.  With the whirlwind of Christmas with three children + a good ol' fashioned sinus infection, I'm fairly spent.

So, I'll choose to share a day of gingerbread cookie making with Grandma Pam; because after all, next to celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ, the second most important thing about Christmas is cookies creating memories with family!

 Inevitably, when baking with littles, there is flour everywhere.  It doesn't get a whole lot cuter than flour on the end of my little guy's nose.

A little too young to bake- she is an excellent supervisor.

Didn't see this one coming, did you?  I have no idea why he wasn't wearing pants.  It's not unusual, though.  Not for him.  Not in our house.

She made this one especially for daddy!

That sums up our holidays fairly well... we spent a lot of time together, visited family, created memories and celebrated.  The Christmas season is my absolute favorite!  While I might be a *little* burnt out at this point, it won't be long before I'm longing for Christmas music on the radio and sparkling lights on our Christmas tree.  Only 363 more days until next Christmas!
