Gingerbread , Cookies and Family

December 17, 2012

Celebrating Christmas and celebrating the love of our family. 
We had a little Christmas gathering on Sunday, sharing our goodies and our Blessings with you! 

I am thankful and I am Blessed to have my family.  Two of my children and their families came to my house yesterday to spend time together, make a Gingerbread House and decorate Christmas cookies! 

I am so thankful for my daughter, and her caring and loving hands which teach her children not only how to decorate cookies, but teach kindness and gratitude.

I am very thankful for the joyful heart of my daughter, who reaches out to neighbors and friends and shows her child about caring and honesty.

I am thankful for the sparkle which Maisy brings to my life. She is three and she picked out these cookies which she is going to decorate!

Busy little hands, plenty of frosting and sparkly sprinkles make for colorful treats!
Recipe for these cookies can be found on my last post Christmas Sugar Cookies

I am thankful for Wyatt, who brings joy to each moment. He is 6 months, has never eaten a sugar cookie before, and he liked them-alot!

I am thankful for Afton, who brings art and music to our world.  She is a seasoned baker and independent first grader. She is all ready to frost the cookies, and add the finishing touches to our Gingerbread House!

I am thankful for all of my children and for the wonder of life!Wondering what you will you be doing this week before Christmas. to celebrate the birth of Jesus and rejoice in the Blessings of Family.
