Family Traditions!

One of our family traditions growing up was every Christmas we would make MGM cookies. I think my mom got it from her mom. So I finally got the recipe from her and made cookies yesterday with Ethan (Reagan was taking a nap). We had so much fun. This recipe just reminds me of many Christmases and I really want to bring traditions that I grew up with to my kids as well. So if you're seeing this and you live nearby, you may be getting some our homemade cookies soon. It's beginning to feel alot like Christmas. :)

First we had to get some cookie cutters because I didn't have any. We found a deal at an outlet that had 101 for $10. Steal! That's also our ball of dough.
Ethan rolling it out, he was so proud of himself.

Putting the cutters in place.

The dough is DEFINITELY the best part of this recipe. It's soooooo good!

Decorating time!

Our beautiful creations!

Were the kids getting stuff all over their clothes and that is why they are shirtless?! I love those family traditions!
