Personal Notes:
Personal Memories from Donnalee Geiger: I remember Mom having some of these cookies at Christmas time that Vivienne had brought over. Vivienne used to live across the street from Mom and Dad Geiger in Oklahoma City. These were melt in your mouth cookies. Sooooo delicious! Christmas at Mom and Dad Geigers house was so fun. Dad with his music blaring in one room, the CB radio in another, and chatter amongst the children and grandchildren. The smell of Moms turkey and ham in the oven, everyone sitting around the table snacking and watching the clock for the meat to come out of the oven! No matter how many of us there were, we ALWAYS managed to get another chair around the table. Cameras flashing for that right picture, the sounds of laughter....so much commotion and so much love!
