We Are Not Daily Beggars

The number of pictures in which my children have no clothes on may lead you to believe otherwise. They actually do own plenty of clothes, but for some reason, tend to lose them if we hang around the house too long.

So when we began making sugar cookies this morning, it seemed pretty natural that Asher should be in his underwear. Not quite a classic Rockwell scene, but still a sweet memory.

But then he decided he would like to wear an apron like I was so he got to wear the companion apron to mine (which of course says "Jamie loves Kris"--wedding gifts that I'm sorry to say we don't use nearly enough)

So as Jude and Daddy recovered from a rough night of coughing and yucky nasal issues, Asher and I made our first batch of sugar cookies ever. Very messy, but very worth it.

And with that, I bid a fond farewell to the December Blog Challenge of 2009. And it has been officially decided that this will be the very last DBC ever. Bittersweet, but it's just time to move on. A Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night.

This isn't the first time we've said no more DBC, so let's make this one stick.

I really wish I had a sugar cookie right now. Unless it has coughing and yucky nasal issue germs on it.

For real this time. We're done.

And you would be welcome to our cookies if you were here--they are relatively germ-free.

Patti loves the aprons.

I feel like it's a little hasty to end the DBC. I mean, it's a whole year away.

Patti--I have thought the same thing since we seem to make this declaration every year. It might kind of be like forgetting how much it hurts to have a needle placed in your spine and then get sliced open, yet doing it yet again. I guess we should heed the warning and add a "if the Lord wills, we will do this or that."
