Carrying on a Family Tradition

Yesterday I made the doughs for the nut roll that my family enjoys for Christmas each year. Ever since I was a little girl my father has been making this treat for us for Christmas. This is the only time of the year that we have it. I think that is what makes it so special.
Since I have to rest my back Matthew and Doug have gotten in on the act. After supper they got the table cleaned up, rolled up their sleeves, and got to work. Choose your rolling pin and sprinkle that flower on the table and get to work.
Matthew is even dressed for the job. A lot of flour flew but they soon got the hang of what they were doing and then they got serious.
Here are the first rolls ready to go into the oven. They sure will taste good on Christmas morning when we get up and have breakfast.
Thank you Daddy for a lovely and tasty tradition. I love you.
