My Grammie Leighton was visiting us for about 3 weeks and having her so close by brought back alot of memories for me. First and foremost was when she made her Molasses cookies and yep I got the reciepe. These little cookies brought the memories of me as a little girl living in a hick town called Willcox. (no offense to the family still there;)
I remember always coming into Grammies house and knowing there would ALWAYS be cookies in her glass brown cookie jar. It reminds me of the many christmas's spent at Grammies and Pupa's house with Gigi eating her raindeer candycane's and big bowls of homemade eggnog, the talent shows and pupa reading the christmas story. Then we would all go outside and see Santa and his reindeer flying over grammies and rush home to our bedroom with christmas lights hanging in our room with a little christmas tree. The smell of Grammies has been permiating through out my house for the last couple of days and I love how much that brings back. I love listening to good ol frank sinatra and all the old timers. I love to listen to that music and just reminis. Wow too think cookies brought all this on, but hey if you tasted them and smelled your house as they were cooking, you would always want them in your cookie jar too!!!!!!
