The Christmas Story book with Santa on the cover that dad has read every Christmas since before you could read yourself. The bell ornament you made out of an egg carton and aluminum foil in nursery school.

  1. I made these cookies yesterday and today – I think I got 6-7 decent-sized cookies. Not your traditional Christmas cookies but I’ll be using them for that purpose. Really good!
