Something Old, Something New

Pin It Now! Isn't that some sort of tradition for weddings? And something blue is in there somewhere I think. I don't recall having anything old or blue for my own wedding. Definitely lots of new, though!!

And what does this have to do with cookies?

Something Old: Well, every December I get to pull out some very old and very cherished cookie cutters. Yep, those silver ones in the photo belonged to my grandma. She passed them on to my mom, and then my mom passed them on to me. There's an angel, Santa, tree, holly leaf, bell, star, reindeer, gingerbread man--I think that's all.

I also use my grandma's Prize Sugar Cookie recipe, and I wear an apron that my mom made (when she was just 14 or so) for my grandma.

Something New: It's been fun over the years adding new cookie cutters, too. Most, of course, are plastic.

My sweet girl helping mama cut out cookies. I guess someday, she'll be in her own kitchen using the passed down cookie cutters. It will be here before I know it.

These are definitely my favorite Christmas treats!!

Something Blue: I guess Mr. Snowman's scarf will have to do!
