Traditions part two

 - by midwestequine

During Thanksgiving I wrote about my turkey day traditions and featured a picture of my mom’s famous turkey cookies.

Now that it’s Christmas time – and since my mom was so thrilled about the turkey cookies being featured in my blog before – she decided to make extra special Christmas cookies this year.

Around this time of year, whenever it’s on, my family and I always have to sit in our living room together and watch “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.”

It’s one of our favorite Christmas movies – and personally I love the clay animation – so in honor of that tradition my mom decided to make Rudolph and Clarice cookies.

My mom normally makes your traditional Christmas cookies – trees, snowmen, Santa – but this year she added a personal touch by incorporating one of our treasured Christmas traditions.

When I was in my teens I thought this tradition was lame, since I’ve seen the movie so many times, but now having been out of the house for many years it’s a tradition that I cherish.

Also, now that my brother is in his teens, I force him to sit down with us and watch it – despite the slight eye roll that I get.

Even though I’ve been out of the house for a while now, and my brother will soon be leaving too, my mom makes Christmas – in her over the top way – magical every year.
