memories...

when i was a little girl my grandma jesperson used to watch me while my mom worked in my grandpas chiropractic office. one of my favorite memories from that time was when we used to make cookies together. my grandma didnt make cookies to eat the cookies, we made cookies just to eat the dough (my grandma was diabetic so this was a real treat)! my grandma has passed this love of cookie dough (unfortunately for my waistline!) down to all of us in my family. it has become somewhat of a sunday tradition for sophia and nana to make cookies together and for us all to eat half of the dough before it can even be made into cookies. i couldnt help but think of my grandma this past sunday. its coming up on a year now since she passed away and it made me sad but brought a smile to my face as i watched my girls hubbled around my mom "helping" her make our sunday cookies and then devouring the dough! i miss my grandma but i cherish the memories i have of her. like our cookies (of course!), snapping greenbeans together while we watched her favorite soaps, singing man in the moon (my girls favorite!!), her face lighting up whenever she saw charlotte, and doing her hair every week (she was always so grateful!). i love and miss you grandma and will always be a fellow "doughhead" as grandpa used to call us!!
