The festivities continue with the baking of our annual Christmas cookies.
We mixed up the dough in the afternoon.
Then we baked and decorated after dinner.
Still on tap we have gingerbread people, cream cheese cutouts, and oatmeal cookies.
During the rest of the year we almost never bake sweets, so the holiday baking is really starting to carry some weight as a tradition.
Speaking of weight, I'm sure these will be very useful in helping me reach my Weight Watchers goals. Oh well. As Bunny McDugal would say, "Tradition is a highly underrated virtue."
At Christmastime, Almighty Tradition must trump the waistline. Better luck next year, pal.
