Christmas Traditions

Let's try this again. I wrote this post and thought I had put it out and it is gone. I mean... not even in the archives... gone. But the pictures are out in Image Shack... I wasn't totally imagining I wrote it.

My mom started a new tradition with the boys this year. She made sugar cookies and gingerbreadmen for the boys to decorate. After the icing was dry, they got to put them on their tree.

Before they made it to the tree a few were missing bites here and there. And a couple of them disappeared completely once Happy Dog realized there were edible items on the tree.

Guess I better get good at making sugar cookies and gingerbreadmen this year!

Gotta love edible ornaments. *grin* Makes it easy to put away the tree at the end of the season.

Nice tradition! Bou made 16 dozen cookies while visiting. I can see her having this tradition for the tree (now they're eaten) once she becomes a Granny. Egad, the thought of my daughter being a Granny!!! Time SLOW DOWN...

We started a new tradition this year of me taking the boys our for breakfast on Christmas Eve such that my lovely and talented wife can experience a bit of calm before the storm.
