This book holds the items for the contest I enter in 2019, 2020, and beyond.
|I watched the Christmas tree lights glow,
I listened for sleigh bells jingling,
while inhaling the scent of cinnamon
and freshly baked pumpkin pie.
I knew Grandma was in the kitchen
baking homemade pies for Christmas day,
and preparing the turkey's stuffing mix.
Before I went to bed on Christmas Eve,
she would bring me a cup of hot chocolate
and set out the cookies for Santa Claus.
The house always smelled so nice,
with the aroma of spices everywhere
that I wanted Christmas Eve to last
throughout the coming year.
