My wife Judy comes from a large family of nine kids. Each year the five “Turba” sisters get together for a Christmas cookie baking weekend. The weekend has grown in size from the five sisters to include the nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, a sister-in-law or two and a yellow lab who guards the cookie table. I was able to invite myself for an afternoon of snitching cookies and bonbons under the premise of taking pictures for my blog. Here are a few of my favorite photos.
