The Night Before Christmas Cookies

Wednesday, December 23, 2009
Midnight mass on Christmas Eve, wrapping gifts and frosting cookies, we make great memories in our family year after year.

Over the years we have lost lots of our loved ones but continue to instill the traditions with the new generations, hoping they fall into our footsteps of great memories someday in their futures.

Making those special moments with Mom and Dad, our Grandparents, and years of gatherings with cousins, Aunts, and Uncles have distant memories now but they molded our lives with the best holidays.

Here are just a few of our favorite things we make to celebrate the season and foods we love.
