My most favorite part of Christmas are the traditions I have with the kids that we have carried on since I can remember.  The first one is making Christmas Cookies.  By no means are we Martha Stewart or the Cake Boss but we just love to get our hands in and get creative together.  This year Michaela kind of headed up the whole deal…..

It is a family affair…….



Like I said I am no Martha Stewart and the best cookie of all was Joey's "hand" cookie for me.  It was all about Mommy that night and I loved every minute of it!.  Take that Martha!

One of my favorite Videos to make from 2011 is HERE:

It was then off to make Gingerbread houses………..I mean our Gingerbread Burgos Village!  Stay tuned!
