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.
