without some decorated cookies and while in years past i would make 4-5 different kinds of cookies, this year it's only these. years ago did cookie swaps and such but since our family has grown, dispersed or passed away, no need for too many. it's sad how the really fun years don't last very long. i was probably working 2-3 jobs and missed enjoying them as much as i would have liked. life was pretty chaotic and crisis-filled in those days, so i am trying to make the most of my days now. probably explains why i have sooo many UFOs....LOL! *** off to use up the day's minutes having more fun!
