Celebrating the Season — some people decorate with lights all over the exterior of their houses, others send out family newsletters — me, I bake cookies. This past weekend the cookie baking began with 6 different batches of cookies mixed, baked, and packed away in the freezer. Even more cookies will be made this coming week (and weekend too) and then the fun will begin as I package and distribute all those treats to family and friends. Can’t think of a sweeter way to celebrate Christmas !
