There was a tradition started in my family about fifteen years ago and it's still going strong. It's our annual Candy/Cookie Day. Every year the adult girls of the family get together a week before Christmas and make candies and cookies all day long. We bring our dishes and ingredients over to someone's house and divvy up the goodies. The kids help by putting on the sprinkles or dipping the chocolate. It's messy and exhausting, but worth all the love that is put into it.
This year there was an overabundance. No one got shorted of anything. We had chocolate peanut butter balls, chocolate fudge, peppermint bark, sugar cookies, dipped pretzels, and so much more.

For lunch, we all pitched in and ordered several Little Caesars pizzas. The conversations and quality time was just what I needed.

The guys in the family also pitched in. They were our sprinklers, kid watchers, and errand boys.
