The girls had a wonderful time delivering our neighborhood Christmas gifts this year. It was incredibly cold, so they suited up and headed out, on their own (even crossing two streets for one delivery--very brave!). They absolutely did not want me to join them on their expeditions, probably because moms ruin all the fun.
Naomi told me that at one point she fell down in the snow and that Olivia had taken care of her, even to the point of carrying her piggyback partway home.
"Yeah," added Olivia, "but then she got too heavy."
these, and they are delicious. And the recipe's not kidding when it says it make 12-1/2 dozen. So, unless you're giving them to all your neighbors, maybe just make a half batch. Or a quarter-batch.
