Yummy cookies for our sailors

Every year our church bakes literally thousands of cookies to hand out to our single sailors living in the barracks. It is always a fun time for our family to bake and bake the Saturday before they are handed out. This year was extra special because the boys wanted to do the baking all by themselves. I was a little nervous about letting them fly solo but I must admit they were yummy! While we were waiting for each batch to finish we watched White Christmas together. On that following Monday some of our Navy families handed out over 500 cookie bags to the sailors. They were so thankful and pleasantly surprised to be handed free cookies and an invitation to church.

It sounds like you had a wonderful time making the cookies and a wonderful turn out from the church! I am so excited that you keep up this tradition.
