Merriment Day 11...A Family Tradition

 
I headed over to my parent's house tonight after work to take part in our annual cookie baking party.
It has become a family tradition to get together every year and bake Christmas cookies. Me, my mom, sister,and 2 nieces had a marathon baking session tonight. My sons used to take part too when they were younger, but now only one is home and he only wants to eat them, not help make them.
 
 


My oldest niece with her cookies. Her favorite are sugar cut out cookies.

 
And the little one didn't make it throught the night.

 
I'll be visiting the others taking part in the chain in the morning. After working 11 hours today and then baking, this girl is pooped.
 
Night all.
