It’s been a tradition in my mom’s house for years. My best friend and I usually get together and pick out what kind of cookies we are going to make and then spend the rest of the day baking.

Some of the cookies ended up going home with each of us and most of them ended up at the hospital for the staff. It’s nice to just get together, hang out, and have fun with our friends.
