My twin sister and I were going to celebrate our 6th birthdays at kindergarten and mom was going to make cookies to take to school. The problem was that we were in different classes so she had to bake for about 70 kids. Though I had never tasted a gingerbread cookie, I had seen them on TV. Our birthday is in December and they looked so good in those Christmas shows and commercials and I insisted to mom that I had to have gingerbread men for my friends as school. She tried to talk me into a nice snowman cake but I wouldn't hear of it. So my sister, my mom and I spent hours before bedtime mixing the dough, rolling it out, cutting out the men and baking them. We were not finished by our bedtime but mom stayed up till 3AM baking and decorating each one. They were beautiful!!! I was so happy and proud when mom brought them into my class right up to the minute we started to eat them. I discovered not only did I not like gingerbread neither did most of the kids. I guess a liking for gingerbread men is something one acquires beyond the age of 6! Most of mom's hard work went into the trash can with single bites out of them! My mom is now 85 years old and I will be 53 in December and I'm sure she'll tell me this story again as she has every year. It was many many years ago, she now can laugh about it but she bakes me a snowman cake and never, never gingerbread men.
