My Grandma Becker lived with us; at Christmas she would always make sour cream cut out cookies and we would help ice them. We had soooooooooooooooo much fun doing this. My twin sister, Jane, and I loved icing cookies! Our brother, Billy, could make really pretty decorted oookies; sometimes it took him 10 minutes to ice one cookie -- it was very detailed! I make cut out cookies for my grandchilren so they can decorate them! I am carrying on the tradition!

Sharing a Christmas tradition with your grandchildren is the best way to keep the memories of childhood alive. I also hope you share stories from your Grandmother with them. Keep having fun.

I love your story. I truly believe in the importance in carrying on traditions, something that seems to be slowly fading away in todays society, along with values and manners. But don't get me started on that. I am rather impatiently waiting for the birth of my first two grandchildren - my son and darling daughter-in-law are having twins. The traditions I have been sharing with my sons (alas no daughters) and then my young nieces, I will now be able to share with my grandchildren in just a few years.

I made turkey cookies with my granddaughter. I outlined her hand and used that as the pattern. We also did that with pie crust with her little sister and put on our pumpkin pies. They were a big hit.

traditions are what keep families connected, past-present-and future.
