    When my eldest was in college at Chapman University in Orange, CA, there were several young families that befriended him. They began having beautiful children, so he started doing a yearly cookie decorating party for them. His fifth year doing it, the pandemic hit.

    No Problem.

    He made boxes for each family with pre-baked cookies and frosting bags with multi-colored decorator icing. He delivered a box to each family’s door stoop and arranged a zoom meeting so they could all enjoy watching each other decorate!

    My Mom, his Oma, would be so proud!

    Bravo! Making the world a kinder place, one cookie at a time.

    Great job. I’m sure the gesture made everyone smile.

      Karen…it’s Michael’s son that did the amazing cookie package project. I just praised him.

      Perhaps the names both beginning with M is confusing. However I don’t rock a mustache quite as well.

    Not only multi-talented but with a heart of gold.

    Beautiful gesture and great to keep the tradition going in a non-traditional way. 🙂 And the packaging is amazing!

    Very kind of him!

      I’m trying to find pics of the kids having a blast with the cookies. We were watching the whole thing on the Zoom meeting. It was very cute!

    Awwww, this is was I started doing with nephews so I didn’t have to make/mail them myself. Love this! ❤️

    Now I send a prepared box with the blank cookies and it’s become their Christmas Day tradition to ice the cookies (and I got out of the job of icing them all on my own).

      Garron lives about 30 minutes away from his old neighborhood, which is where all these cookies went. He did a ‘porch drop’ due to covid.

      Your nephews are blessed!
