cookies with baabee

on with the traditions...
this is actually a taber family tradition, thus baabee helps carry it on with my kids.  the baking of shortbread cookies at christmas time.  my dad's mom's mom's shortbread cookie recipe, to be exact.  i remember loving making this as a kid, primarily because you get to dig your hands in to the dough and mix it all together.  lucy seems to love this, as well, as she was the only one who participated last year (was she really that little just one year ago?) and the only one who stuck around for the whole process this year (finn got a little grossed out after about 2 minutes and needed to wash his hands)...








finn decided just to watch the rest of the time from the sidelines with his clean hands and mustache...



and where was jack?  well, the cardinals game and an afternoon nap on the couch were calling his name instead...
