Merry Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas Eve!  My third (and final for 2013) batch of cinnamon rolls are rising on my kitchen counter.  At this time our kitchen is covered in a layer of flour, cinnamon, and sugar.  Dooley and Trigger are licking the wood floors.  The post-baking cleanup must beginning...after I finish this cup pot of coffee.

My cousin's 14 year old daughter, Addisyn, came over to help work over the dough.  She's a natural baker.  One interesting conversation we had, which made me feel sad.  Addisyn is a country music fan.  She started naming all the music she enjoys, and I asked if she also liked The Dixie Chicks.  She doesn't know The Dixie Chicks.  WHAT?!  I'm so mad at Natalie, Emily, and Martie.  They are so talented.  They need to put out more music.  Here's the truth: if someone with talent does not use that talent, then they have no talent.  Use your talents in this world!
