O the joys of Holiday baking
For baking and cooking are always fun
When you have the best people working
Today, on this fridged day
My mom and I tucked ourselves inside.
We watched the wind blow and harden on the ground.
Yet inside we were playing with magic.
We mixed and rolled,
tasted and sweetened
We waited and watched
Movies of love and laughter
We cranked up the oven
We placed the little and stout
gingerbread men and women..and little babies
on sheets of parchment paper
We waited for them to rise up
Once out we decorated and tasted
She swirled frosting and I placed red and green M&M’s
On each and everyone one.
The kitchen smelled of
Molasses, Oreo cookie fudge and Mint filled, chocolate dipped cookies
Better than any candle, for certain.
Once finisehd we rested
And when it was time to leave
The memories kept me warm.
