How do you celebrate National Sugar Cookie Day?
Good question! You can start by going to your local grocery store and pick up a box of sugar cookies or if you like them fresh and hot like myself pick up some cookie dough and make them yourself. However, make sure you have a nice tall glass of milk to wash it all down. Enjoy your weekend.....
