• It was so much fun, Stacy! You know already that I’m no culinary genius, nor do I want to be, but I’d study the top chefs of the world if it meant I could spend more time with Sara. 🙂

  1. What a great story and pictures that only got better. Though I think Sara got the green pink-eyed dino I had my eyes on. My cookie cutters would go well with yours, dinos and angels, but they haven’t gotten a workout for a while. I guess I need a Sara in my life. Happy you two have each other.

    • Cookie cutters are among the cherished objects we’d all do well to put into regular rotation, in my opinion– if not for the cookies themselves, then for the creativity and belly laughs that baking/decorating them inspires. 🙂

  2. Now that is what Christmas is all about! What joy to see these pictures and get to share in the fun. Those cookies are gorgeous! Lots of love to you and to sweet Sara.

    • I agree with you, 100%. Lots of fa la la la la going on in that kitchen. Wish you could’ve joined us, Lorraine. I’ll bet you’re a Cookie Decorator extraordinaire. xo

  3. That brings back memories of baking with my mom!
    We never ate raw dough–the mere thought makes me shudder–but we would eat chocolate chips out of the bag in addition to the ones that went into the cookies.

    The cat looks like he’s contemplating the ornaments.
    Our cat likes sitting under the tree also!

    • You never ate raw dough? Girl, you don’t know what you’re missing! (This sugar cookie dough recipe doesn’t include raw eggs, so it’s safe. See also: YUMMY!)

      Sara ate a good amount of frosting and sprinkles, too. Maybe that appeals more to you, ala those chocolate chips?

      Yes, there’s something about a cat nestled under a Christmas tree that makes a house feel even more cozy. 🙂

    Love made visible

    I’m not sure who I’m happiest for: you, or sweet Sara! Love made visible? Oh my, yes. Thank you for opening your heart and your kitchen door wide to welcome us in! Precious memories, and extra-sweet photos.

    • Re: Love made visible

      I’m so glad you wanted to join us in our little kitchen escapade. It’s this sort of adventure that makes Christmas (every day) merry and bright. And sharing the sweet memories with special friends? Delicious beyond measure.

  5. That’s a sweet memory for Sara (and you). :>) The cookies look beautiful. I remember helping make peanut butter cookies as a youngster (the kind you press with a fork).
