Okay, so this week I kicked off my holiday blog series, 25 Days of Christmas. I will be sharing with you guys, for 25 days straight (hopefully) cookies, appetizers, dishes, and other baked goods that are perfect for the holiday season. I have been wanting to do this series on my blog for about 2-3 years now. So, I decided to finally pull the plug and challenge myself to get it done. So, here we are well into our first week of this blog series and I am super excited to share with you this second cookie recipe of Ooey Gooey Butter Cookies. You are going to love it.
I don’t remember the year, but I remember I was 12 or 13 ( I think) and it was the last Christmas I had where I was excited. You know, can’t go to sleep the night before and was really anxious about seeing what Santa brought me for Christmas. My brothers were the same way. If not more excited because they were younger. I remember the oldest boy, Frank, came in my room waking me up for Christmas. Our parents hadn’t awakened yet, so they decided to get me first. I crept downstairs to see what was under the tree and there was a boatload of toys and presents just waiting for us to open, but no parents. The moment when I fell in love with my brothers, admittingly, was when those six eyes looked up at me with excitement and innocence the Christmas morning. I found some shirts and pants for them to put on as pajamas so they would be warm, made sure they brushed their teeth and washed their faces. By this time, the parents were up and we all went downstairs to open our gifts. From that point on, my protection level for my brothers went up 1000% because I realized at that moment they really looked up to me and needed me. And maybe, just maybe they didn’t mean to get on my nerves as much as they did.
