I drove to Milwaukee on Saturday to spend a fun-filled afternoon of cookie-making with my girly relatives.
My sister and cousin Lexy
It was fun to see everyone, and we made about a million cookies. (That might be an exaggeration).
I didn’t take many home. Because I am the only one who would eat them around here (Jason is not big into sweets). And those that I did take, I’ll be donating to the local firemen. My mom and I also left some at my grandma’s retirement community.
It was more about the getting-together and spending time than it was about cookie-making.

My aunt had a collection of my great-grandma’s hand-embroidered aprons, and she passed them out to my mom and other aunts. It was kind of a fun memory of when my great-grandma used to join in our cookie endeavors. Every once and a while, we’d catch her muttering German swears under her breath when the cookies weren’t doing what she wanted them to!
I am more interested than ever in learning more about embroidery. Seriously. Aren’t these awesome?
Anyone else having a cookie-making get together this holiday season?
