Baking Christmas Cookies

Jonathan and I had dentist appointments in Ottawa a couple days ago on Wednesday. We got together with our friends, the Donkles, afterwards and took the kids sledding in Alan Park. Another fun time. Unfortunately, I forgot the camera so we don't have any pictures from the day but it was a nice visit.

The past couple days have been spent finishing up on shopping and then grocery shopping. Today, is baking day with Grandma. Mom and Jonathan are making chocolate chip cookies. Mom uses the Nestle Toll House cookie recipe but none of us ever have any luck getting them to turn out the way she does. Maybe, if we're lucky, Jonathan will figure out her secret and make them at home sometime. Sounds good anyway.

The next couple days will probably be spent baking and tying up loose ends in order to have things ready for Christmas Eve and Day.
