We went around our compound today passing out the Christmas cookies we made. Grace instructed everyone to, "take one," and then said, "Happy Christmas!" Sister Carol asked Grace and Joseph exactly how they made them which turned into a 10 minute lecture on mixing sugar, eggs and flour along with the process of baking the cookies and checking on them after 1 hour. I had to insert a correction at that last statement. It was fun to see them share their knew knowledge and to share something they were so proud of.


  1. Haha - made the same cookies here yesterday with the kids :) Great minds think alike!

  2. haha this is too funny- after 1 hour those cookies would be black crisp, i think. was this their first sugar cookies??? i made them with william and lindsey last week. anyway, i miss you.

  3. Christmas cookies sound so good. I hope you enjoyed some too! Merry Christmas!

  4. Grace sounds like such a character...take one!...I would do that too if I'd just made them from scratch :)
