As you’re reading this, we are probably cutting down our Christmas tree. The day after Thanksgiving, we go out to Maryland to a cut-your-own farm and then stop for BBQ on the way home. It’s when Christmas officially starts. I mean, for the rest of my family. I’ve been listening to Christmas music for weeks now.
A look at my archives is proof of my love for the holiday. Check out all the Winter and Christmas treats in that Seasonal button up there. But here are a bunch of my favorites.
Naturally, number one on the list is the original MELTING SNOWMAN COOKIE!! I’m seeing melting snowmen everywhere, and I’m convinced I’m the cause. (If you’re not convinced, let me preserve my ego.)
The standards: DECORATED COOKIES!
