Eat, Drink, and Be Merry!
Last month, I wrote a little about Mom. I think of her so often this time of year. She absolutely loved the holidays... and did everything possible to fill our home with a joyous spirit.
What I best remember about Mom's holiday preparations is the time she spent baking Christmas cookies. Mom's birthday was December 17, and she spent her birthday week baking dozens and dozens of cookies. Mom would make two or three different types each day. I still remember the pure joy of coming home from school with my brother to freshly-baked cookies. While I didn't realize it until years later, I'm sure she saved our favorite types as the last batches she would make each day. To me, nothing will ever mean Christmas more than her homemade cookies.
So, Mom, today's card is for you -- and will be included in the Christmas package hubby and I send to my brother and his family. Its sentiment is from a holiday decoration I found at a Pennsylvania craft store: Christmas Cookies and Holiday Hearts... That's the Way the Season Starts.
|Thanks to Jennifer McGuire for her|

spoons to apply glitter. :)
Hope the card brings back lots and lots of warm and fuzzy Christmas memories to my brother.
