I found this never posted picture from many years ago, and it made me think of some great memories; it also made me think about how quickly time passes. I remember this day so vividly. The boys were watching the snow and sledding for hours. We had hot chocolate and made these cookies together because we had been reading The Gingerbread Man all week. The boys kept asking  me to look in the oven to make sure their cookies did not run away.They were huge cookies and they decorated them with enthusiasm. It was probably February since they used candy hearts!
