For the past month I have made a point to spend lots of quality bonding time with my kids baking cookies....I thought I had done a good job of this, but the other day Logan said "Mom, when are we going to make Christmas cookies?" I replied that we had already made many batches of different kinds of Christmas cookies, especially while Grammy (my mom) was here. He said "no, Mom, I mean CHRISTMAS cookies!...The kind you cut out with cookie cutters and decorate!" Apparantly my batches of peanut butter balls, chocolate chip cookies, no-bake oatmeal cookies, and everything else DIDN'T COUNT as Christmas cookies:)! And then, lo and behold, my wonderful visiting teacher from church, Robbie Schneider, saved the day and brought me a batch of cookie dough already mixed up with sprinkles and cookie cutter and all:) They were delicious and the boys had such fun finally making their "Christmas" cookies:) Thanks Robbie!
