My sister, my mom and I got together at my mom's house last Sunday to bake a sh!t ton of cookies. We baked ALLLL day long.

My sister and I picked up my grandpa in the morning and got to my mom's house around 10. We had our recipes picked out, our ingredients in order and were ready to bake (minus the fact that we left our cookie cutters back at my sister's house - thank goodness for my sister's husband). We didn't leave my mom's until 6:30ish!!

We made some old time faves (sugar cookies, peanut butter blossoms, Mexican wedding cookies) and made some newbies (mint chocolate bark, peanut butter and chocolate shortbread, bars and raspberry linzer cookies). All turned out super yummy and now the trick is going to be giving them away as gifts before they go into my tummy!!

It was a wonderful day spending time with family and officially kicking off the holiday season.
