We've also tried different cookie recipes--sugar, shortbread, gingerbread. This year, my daughter was in charge of the dough. My husband found a nice sugar/gingerbread cookie hybrid.
Then of course the creativity sets in. Flying pigs. Pikachu. Manga characters and of course, our beloved sports teams. Go Stanford and Go Sharks! And onto housecleaning and traditional New Year's food and family.
