1. Mom spends all week making Christmas cookies that look like:
  2. This
  3. This
  4. This
  5. And this.
  6. No one really likes those.
    They're fine, but they're not as good as regular everyday cookies. They're made of like, crushed nuts and cereals and spices, and they don't taste like what anybody in our family really wants in a cookie.
  7. Last, she makes buckeyes.
    She only makes a small batch because, by now, she has a ton of cookies in her house.
  8. Buckeyes are everyone's favorite, though, and there is not enough.
