Today truly is the most wonderful day in the year. AlthoughI am not necessarily saying that Andy Williams should suck my pink steel, forthis reason anyway, I do prefer today over the day that the silver-backed daddybear with the velvet fetish comes down my chimney.*
Today is Christmas cookie baking day!
Picture it. Denver. 1998. A tradition begins when a smallgroup of lifelong friends decide to get together in Frank’s recently remodeledkitchen to bake cookies. One moveacross country, one kid, husbands, countless hairstyles, and jean sizes we’restill gathering to bake cookies.
During the passing of time I have gone from swimming in 34 size jeans, to squeezinginto 38, then back to 34’s I still look forward to today every year.
*So much for this blog post being a warm holiday greeting.
