December #InkRipples: A Tradition of Christmas Cookies

Posted by Katie L. Carroll on December 5, 2016 in Art, Christmas cookies, Family, Food, Holidays, Ink Ripples, Pictures |

It’s the last #InkRipples of the year! But don’t worry, we have a whole new line-up of topics for 2017. Keep an eye out later in the month for the official #InkRipples 2017 announcement. We’re always happy to have you join in on the conversation–this month we’re talking cookies.

I have a long-standing tradition in my family of baking Christmas cookies. My siblings and I started making them many, many years ago with our Nana (our great-grandmother). When my first nephew was born, we were all very excited to bring that tradition to a new generation of family. I think we’ve missed a few years here and there, but it’s something we always have fun with and I hope we keep the tradition going for many more years. Here are a few highlights of cookies we’ve created over the years.

My sister's cookies...she's such a show-off with her crazy good cookie decorating skills!

#InkRipples is a monthly meme created by Katie L. Carroll, Mary Waibel, and Kai Strand. We pick a topic (December is all about cookies), drop a ripple in the inkwell (i.e. write about it on our blogs), and see where the conversation goes. We’d love to have you join in the conversation on your own blogs or on your social media page. Full details and each month’s topic can be found on my #InkRipples page.
