Every year around the Holiday Season, my family makes Christmas cookies. Everything from gingerbread men and gingerbread houses, to sugar cookie angels and Christmas trees, etc. It’s actually a very serious tradition and I love doing it every year. I don’t bake anything…that would be a mess. I just decorate – which is still a mess – but it is a ton of fun!
Now, we haven’t made any yet this year. It’s just too early. Won’t do it for a couple of more weeks, but I’ve been getting in the ‘Christmas Spirit’ and my anticipation for Christmas decorations, music and cookies is growing. I was going to do another NaNoWriMo update today, but I haven’t written anything since the last NaNoWriMo post, so I need a filler.
It is a fun filler, though, as I have some pictures to share from last year’s Christmas Cookie Annual Event. This is why decorating Christmas cookies is so fun at my house:
Well, I have one last picture. Yesterday, I went with my parents to the Festival of Trees in Saskatoon. It’s a charity event where people design and decorate Christmas Trees and then donate them to be put on display and up for auction. You just walk around and look at Christmas Trees. Part of your entrance fee goes to the museum, where the Festival is held, and the other part is donated to the Hospital, so even if you don’t buy a tree (because some of them are very expensive) you still get to donate some money through your ticket price.
It’s really fun because I love Christmas, and so does my family. They usually have live bands playing Christmas music and there is also a Gingerbread House auction and some of the houses are AMAZING. I apologize for not taking any pictures to show you. Anyways, the reason I’m tell you all of this is because I bought a gingerbread man cookie at the Festival.
I guess I didn’t need to tell you any of that, I could have just said I bought a cookie. Whatever! I like telling stories and you like listening to them otherwise you wouldn’t be here. So, when I came home I was trying to figure out how to eat this gingerbread man. I was trying to debate between legs and arms first and I finally decided to eat the poor bastards arms first. I didn’t realize that this was what I’d be left with:
Well I think I touched bases on all things cookies. That’s all you’re getting from me ce soir! Thanks for reading and viewing!
