Sure do like those Christmas cookies, Sugar!

 It's time for you to dust off your rolling pins and participate in the highly competitive "Cookie Wars"! Each contestant was given a blob of dough and all the candy sprinkles they could ever dream of.

"Rollin' in the dough"

The rules are simple: 
Pick one cookie for Santa
Pick one cookie for judging
Eat the rest of the dough and cookies
If you get sick, don't "toss your cookies" on the floor!

"Super Cookie Maker" and yes, she did wear this costume for three straight days
 before we could pry her out of it!

Wooley Walk and Live Nativity

It's time to put your "Woolies" on as we take our annual Christmas Light Walking Tour. We bundled up, decorated the strollers with twinkle lights and filled our mugs to the brim with hot chocolate to keep us warm on our jaunt.

The kids took turns choosing and singing their favorite carols along the way.

For the second year a family in town presented a very special live nativity. It was a very touching reminder of what the Season is all about. It was absolutely silent except for the hauntingly beautiful strains of instrumental music softly playing in the background and the sounds of the sheep and cows.

What made it even more special was the surprise that  the Holy Family was my nephews' sweet little family

This kind family also provided hot chocolate and cinnamon rolls to the hundreds of peopled that attended!

The kid's sat around fires and enjoyed their treats.

Next stop Town Hall where the kids posed with the same decorations that their parents posed with years ago.
