Cookies in the Morning.

What I want to remember:

-Winter sunlight streaming in the windows

-The relief of finals being over

-A long day stretching out before us, unmarred by plans

-The smell of my Grandma’s Holiday Many Way butter cookies in the oven

-Sticky fingers stirring with sticky spatulas

-Saturday disheveled hair

-Lots of laughter as they used the camera

-Christmas carols on the radio

-Two helpers who make me smile with their conversation

Home. Life.

Kate - yum. Looks like you had better results than my fiasco :)
Burned caramel, too many kernels in the caramel corn and too many fingers in the hard tac.
