Christmas Cookie Decorating with the Kids
This year we have made Grandma Alice Earnest's famous chocolate peanut butter bars that have been passed down from generation to generation, Grandma Julia Earnest's snowball cookies that I remember so fondly at Christmas time, as well as homemade sugar and shortbread cookies with cream cheese frosting. Oh, and how can I forget: fudge which Grandma Marilyn always had an abundance of and was oh soooo good.
This is the first time Geno has frosted cookies and he absolutely loved it. He was quite proud of the creations he could make. As for Coretta, my little angel, she went into town to get the ingredients I needed, and had fun frosting them as well. Their favorite past might be sampling their final products I think. Tonight we will follow this up with watching The Grinch who Stole Christmas with Jim Carey. I love the holidays, except for being away from my family in the United States. That is the hard part.
