345/365... Cookies and Grandma Tree joy

Every year mom bakes Christmas cookies (the pre-made, cutout cookies are PERFECT for young children) and decorates her "Grandma Tree" with her grandbabies. It is always a memorable event.

And it gets better every year.

Each child really got into decorating their cookies.

They were experts at sampling them.

This little man over-sampled.

My mom was in her glory.

I notice that my baby girl is more like me every day. She didn't get up until every one of her cookies was perfectly decorated.

And then it was time to decorate the "Grandma Tree".

The 4 foot tree was covered in ornaments in 45 seconds.

This would be the sugar crash. Grandma makes it all better.

The final result.

Any tree decorated with love is a beautiful Christmas tree.

Thank you, mom, for another wonderful memory. Love you!
