Warm kitchen, a chilly winter day,
Sweet smells, hot cocoa
We come in from our outdoor romping
You unbundle us, tiny boots lined along the heater to dry.
Cookies to treat us.
As children we say no thank you's,
For your attention, just rosy cheeked smiles.
Today we thank you for all you have been to us.
We love you, Grandma. Always
