Gabriel helped me with making the dough, and was involved in cutting out most of the cookies. Annika got to cut out a few, too. They baked up quickly. Once again, the only reason we did this was because Gabriel begged me over and over. I feel like it would be so easy for me to skip a lot of these traditional activities. Having a child who cares, and who thrives on the traditions and special activities of each season really helps keep me moving and forces me to make the extra effort. I am glad to have cookies to snack on, and I enjoy the memories we create.
