wouldn't be christmas....

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!


  1. Now days you swap quilt blocks instead of cookies. : )
    Have lots of fun in the fabric today, Grace. I was going to sew on bindings for the gift quilts last night, but our power went out. I am falling farther and farther behind!

  2. You are so right about How the fun years don't last very long. The Christmas time of year just isn't the same without my Sister & parents. It's a difficult time of year for so many.....Your cookies look wonderful. Merry Christmas!
