Today was sugar cookie party day... we invited our neighbor (of trick-or-treating fame) to join us in decorating a few dozen cookies after school today.

If you look closely, you'll note that my cookie cutter collection includes three seemingly un-Christmas-like shapes: a diamond, a spade, and a lion. These couldn't be more Christmas-y to me, though, because every time I do make these cookies (and it has been a while—maybe in California, 2006?) I get to use the three cookie cutters my mama gave me from my Grandma Watson's collection. Christmas spades it is!
