I've enjoyed these cooky baking days with my own grandchildren. Duane and Colin helped me on Sunday wrestle the sticky cookie dough into a ball and then into stars, trees, and bells.
Colin needed to use a lot of flour to keep the dough from sticking to the mat and some made it's way to his shirt! We even tried to use a fancy tip to make designs on the cookies.
We also attended a Pullman Civic Theatre play called the Best Christmas Pageant Ever. Miss Heidi's son and daughter were in the play. The story taught the audience the true meaning of Christmas and encouraged us to reach out to naughty welfare children and quit being so judgmental of others. The actors and costumes were outstanding. I loved it!
Colin was eager to give me an early Christmas gift already under the tree. Earlier in December he had the opportunity to do a little shopping on his own and he found this beautiful angel Christmas stocking for me. I now have a fireplace and I have my own Christmas stocking. I'm so grateful for the special love of a grandchild. That's the only Christmas gift I need.
