Cookie Delivery

Here's what the back of the Volvo looked like earlier this week:


Rows of bags of the Heroin Cookies, ready to go out to the friends and neighbors.

And look at the cute tags the kids made:


Each one had a drawing that we added a title to before putting them on the bags. The photo is of my favorite made by Max, "Too Small Santa in a Too Tall Hat."

And I'm kicking myself for not taking a picture of my favorite by Jack, a picture of a green spaceship titled "An Elf Made This Rocketship." If you're the one who go that one, consider yourself very lucky. And if you can take a photo of it and e-mail it to me, I would be eternally grateful. It was fun to see how each picture got sillier and sillier as they decorated 20 tags between them.

I'd like to say that this little art project was planned for months in advance to personalize and add charm to our cookie bags. But, truth be told, it was the only way to keep the kids busy as I tried to get 20 dozen cookies organized to be delivered without absolutely losing my mind.

They say the greatest art comes from suffering, and I have to agree.

Maybe that's where some great holiday traditions come from too, because this one's a keeper.
