Christmas carols playing on the radio and a warm kitchen filled with the aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg.
Eager little hands ready to help.
Oatmeal cookies, mint-chocolate-chip cookies, Ted's favorite peanut-butter cookies topped with candy kisses, gingerbread cookies made with Butterscotch pudding, and Butterfinger bars. That's about enough for today.
Three hours later and a kitchen sink piled high with dishes.
God Bless Us, Everyone.
