Your articles are always very informative and I appreciate them so much! Gingerbread cookies are one of my fave things to bake during the holidays. You are very lucky to have Aunt Bett and her traditions. Thanks for keeping them alive!
For some reason I've kept this book from 1953. It's falling apart but the colors are so vivid and my son loves the story.
Oh my goodness, Susan...what a great keepsake you have. I have a few of my old books, but don't have that one. It would have been fun to use that picture in the article.
I am so glad you like the articles, and look forward to your comments. I think they bring back memories for a lot of folks.
My Ninna was named Susan, and so is my daughter.
Thank you for writing, where is Lawrenceville?
The book is older than I am! lol
I also have a thing for gingerbread men/women Christmas ornaments, cookie cutters, so did my mom. Her middle name was Sue :) That is sweet to name your daughter after your Ninna.
Lawrenceville in northeast of Atlanta. We are a little over an hour from the mountains. Wish we were closer, there are too many people here and still more moving in, building houses...
