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:
I think if I ever need to see a therapist, I will hide these pictures and deny their existence.
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.
After my mom pointed out to me just what exactly it looked like, I had a little bit of trouble eating the rest of the cookie.
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!
