Personal Notes:
Teresa's 7th grade English teacher, Janet Loafman, made Christmas cookies for her class in December 1974. Teresa loved the taste of these, and her teacher shared the recipe. We've never even tried another sugar cookie recipe! Grace, Mercy, Sarah Beth, Katie Rose, and Anna Lea always made and decorated these for our Christmas and Easter teas and took the rest home to their brothers. After much labor, lots of floured faces and doughy hands, the girls would dress up in bride'smaid and prom dresses and sit down to tea. Then, in later years, we followed with a photo shoot!
