We had our annual Swanson's Christmas Bakery where we spend roughly half a day with the boys making pretty inedible holiday cookies. They are manhandled by the boys and always have a ton of flour added to them to get the cookie cutters to properly work before baking.
And then after baking, they decorate them in ways you wouldn't have thought possible.
Still, the boys are happy, and they seem to like eating their cookies, and that's what really matters.
We also took the time to get a picture of Chris, Al and the boys for their Christmas card. Its hard to get one of everyone smiling, but I think we ended up with a few good ones at least.
