When my daughter was two months old, we began a tradition of baking and gifting Christmas cookies to friends and family! She was present but non-participatory that first year!! December 2022 will mark our forty-second year of baking for love! Over the years my nieces and nephew have participated, and now my grandsons! A tradition that has provided a platform for family time; sharing memories of family members no longer with us; stories of Christmas gift loves and uh, not so much; and many laughs. Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies have been a favorite for the past twenty-two years!
My wish for our wonderful, beautiful members and our awesome community who support us, is a joyous holiday season and 2023 filled with love and laughter.
