Our venerable kitchen has produced another crop of old-fashioned Christmas food - shortbread cookies. Our granddaughters lent a helping hand. Here are some pictures:

making the "big cookie"
It's nice to see the traditions being taken up by the granddaughters. Perhaps they'll remember their grandmother "Mimi" at future Christmas celebrations when they have grown and have their own families, just as we remember our parents and grandparents at times like these.
