Kick'n Off the Holidays

It's that time of the year again!!! And I love it. I love ALL of it. The holidays festivities, the lights and music, the shopping and decorating, the friends and family, the endless planning and list making, and oh yes the traditional COOKIE BAKING!!!!!
 A couple weeks ago we did our holiday cookie baking with Great Grandma Ro, Grandma Peggy and Nancy!! We did it at our house this year and it went beautifully!!!! We had a blast as always and kicked off the holiday season in full force.
The girls helped out too. We bake the same cookies every year. We have it down to a science. Pecan Tassies, Chocolate Peanut Butter Balls, Lemon Squares, Russia Tea Cakes, Ginger Creams (Jocelyn renamed them to Korean Ginger Creams!), Chocolate Stars, Old Fashioned fudge (Grandma Ro and I had to make it three times to get it right....very old recipe and very fussy!!!) and Sugar Cookie Cut-Outs and Nut-Goody Bars.
Here's Nancy and my sweeties helping decorate the cut-outs!!!!!!!!!! Can you HEAR the Christmas music???? I had it cranked up!!!!!!!!!!! Did I mention I LOVE THE HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 Ahnya is always eager to help.......and eat them!
 Gabriella and Jocelyn are professional bakers now! They've baked these same cookies since they were babies!
 We took a break and had to burn off some sugar after eating cookies...and played a game of football!!!!
Gabbi can throw a ball like nobodys business and Jocelyn can tackle like a pro!
Magnus pretty much was concerned about not getting dirty and kept brushing off the leaves from his pants saying "no messy momma!" Ahnya was clueless and followed Uncle Curt everywhere!
Here's Uncle Curt and the kids. He is exhaused and the kids are revved up on sugar!!! We had a great weekend baking together and it was the perfect kick-off to the holiday season!!!
