It's that time of year when I start baking Christmas cookies. Today, I made gingerbread men cookies. For some reason, they all had a propensity to lose their heads. No worries. It just meant more for the kids. I put some on a plate and invited them to have one.
My daughter grabbed her cookie, and as soon as she did, the head came off. "Mom, I can't eat this. It's headless!"
"So?" I said and popped the head in my mouth.
"You're a cannibal!"
I looked at that girl. "No, I'm not. If I were a cannibal, I would've eaten the body and put the head on a string to wear around my neck."
She looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe I am.
Headless gingerbread cookies, anyone?
Quick note: Lynda at WIP, has a new book out called Make Believe. It came out yesterday, but since I haven't had access to my main computer, I wasn't able to do a full post about it. I'll try to get it up tomorrow, so you can read about it. Be sure to stop by her blog and congratulate her!
