Time is quickly ticking away to bake cookies for Santa. My favorite Christmassy treats are gingerbread cookies. Between the excellent aroma as they bake in the oven and the opportunities they present for creative cookie cutting & decorating, they are a perfect seasonal goodie!
I heard a bird sing // In the dark of December. // A magical thing // And sweet to remember // “We are nearer to Spring // Than we were in September,” // I heard a bird sing // In the dark of December. — Oliver Herford
In the pediatrics research department at MD Anderson, we occasionally have toy drives, etc. for the Children’s Cancer Hospital. I was very excited to find board books on the Christmas wish list for the Child Life Program.
