The Gingerbread Man

Once upon a time… there was a old man and old lady, they made a gingerbread man and they mixed.  They mixed and they mixed. It was done, and they pressed the cutter on the dough.

Round the short corner to becoming older a new year, be happy refresh yourselves.
Inside caves and growing, new lives come to earth and live a happy life together with their mothers.
No snow is left a splash of colour grows from the ground respect spring for it is beautiful.
Grass is green, starting a new year, celebrations to the end new events coming up so...... Happy New Year!!!!!
