Christmas cookies

 This weekend we had the annual Sudan cookie decorating contest. It was held at the Marable's house this year. As usual it was a fun time (as you can see the kids were even involved) and there was not any trash talking this year. We were sad that MB was sick and so she and Alejandro could not make it.
Getting the dough ready.

Sweet Barron did not know what all the fuss was about.
 Even Jordan got in the act this year.
 Luana is the official icing maker.
 Sweetness personafied.
 How can you say no to this guy?
 Such a pretty little girl.
 Emery Kate and Jayden hard at work.
 The eventual winner hard at work.
 Christy at work while trying to keep all her kids under control at the same time.
 Past champion hard at work on his legendary "Santa".
 Our hostess who did great despite being pregnant.
 Nothing attracts a little girl like a baby - Mollie, Hallie Jane and Campbell.
 The winners!!!
 The winning cookie!!!
 A glimpse of the other entries.
 Artie's christmas tree thematic cookie - with lights and ornaments.

The sad losers - but in reality at the cookie decorating contest there are no losers.

Ok, so call me a snoop, but for various reasons Luana has been on my mind lately, so I did some googling and came up with this blog. I have LOVED looking at the pictures. You guys haven't changed a bit! Beautiful family! I'll never forget how Luana helped me when I was having trouble with my middle pregnancy (Aaron). Brian, Aaron, and Kristin are all happily married and we are grandparents of Brian's three -- Eli, Jaxon, and Alysa, ages 7 and under. We're in Lubbock, but hope to be moving closer to Dallas or Austin one of these days to be close to the kids. Would love to see you all. Give Luana a hug for me. Love, Marylyn (& Paul)
