Our Third Annual Christmas Cookie Baking Day

December 24, 2015


I’ll begin this post with a picture of a mess because, well, a mess is what we made today! A lively, boisterous, fun and chaos-filled mess of flour and dough as lots of little hands and mouths made sure to get their fair share contributing. Even Finn played a part as he- sometimes happily, but towards the end not so happily– observed from the nearby high chair. Anyway, I can’t say we made the most impressive of cookies (maybe next year we’ll get to the icing part), but sure did have a grand old time! I also used a new sugar cookie recipe that is so, so great. It’s simple, doesn’t need to be chilled, and doesn’t expand during the baking! This is the third year in a row we’ve made Christmas cookies together, and hopefully this is a tradition that will stick.

There’s so much more I’d love to say about life lately, but there is never enough time! We’re happy, healthy, and- though missing our family dearly and dreaming of being home for Christmas- doing well in Germany. God’s grace abounds in our lives, and so does his patience towards us (amen for that!)

Merry Christmas!
