Grandma’s Crescent Cookies

Grandma’s Crescent Cookies

I have been staying busy trying to keep my mind off the two week wait. I am now 4 days past my embryo transfer and I’m still feeling really good and positive. The holidays have been such a good distraction. Yesterday and today my Mom and I have been busy baking for our annual Holiday Party. I was raised Jewish but some of our family are Christian so instead of having two separate celebrations we combine the parties and celebrate Hanukkah and Christmas together.
