every year for the past thirty years
the sticky bun lady delivers
her special Christmas treat.
Her children were my preschoolers
thirty-something years ago.
She made her famous sticky buns with the class
and the rest is history… and breakfast.
I have been teaching preschool for over thirty-five years. This is my passion. I believe that children have a voice, and that is the catalyst to enhance or even change the learning experience. Emergent curriculum opens young minds. It's the little things that happen in the classroom that are most important and exciting. That's what I write about.
I was a live guest on the Kelly Clarkson Show. I am highlighted in the seventh edition of Jim Trelease's million-copy bestselling book, "The Read-Aloud Handbook" because of my reading to children. My class has designed quilts that hang as permanent displays at the National Liberty Museum in Philadelphia, the Fisher House at the Boston VA Hospital, and the Massachusetts State House in Boston.

What an amazing tradition, carried through the years and generations
It really is, Beth. ❤️😊
Wow! I’m moving to your neighborhood. Are those her daughters or yours? I think it’s so wonderful to have a relationship with anyone for 31 years! Now that’s what I call tradition! 😉 Merry Christmas, Jennie!
Haha! I wish you were my neighbor, Marlene. Those are her two daughters in the photo- my preschoolers a zillion years ago. They enjoy the Christmas Eve delivery. We all gather and visit and catch up. It is wonderful. ❤️ How amazing that the tradition and relationship has lasted so long. Merry Christmas to you, Marlene. 🎄

Enjoy your multi-generational treat – filled with love and gratitude from the bakers. How sweet that is part of your family’s tradition to be the lucky recipient of such yummies.
Thanks, Laura! Multigenerational is really awesome. This tradition is just wonderful. I hope you had a joyful Christmas. 🎄
Merry Christmas, Jennie. I’ve been a bit under the weather, and I’ve been trying to enjoy my family and friends while feeling like crap. God bless you for all of the children’s lives you have touched and will continue to touch for years to come (even after you eventually retire.)
Thank you so much, Pete. I hope you are on the mend, and had a joyful Christmas. Your kind words are always inspiring and deeply appreciated. 😊
Merry Christmas Jennie!!
And to you, Opher! 🎄
This is indeed a Christmas Eve tradition to savor…one sticky bun at a time! My pastry chef daughter made some for our brunch and they were yumalicious! Hope your Christmas was just as lovely and special as you are. Thank-you!
Thank you so much, Ellen! I do savor those sticky buns. I’m glad you do, too. Enjoy the holidays. 🙂
They look delicious, Jennie.
They are, Dan! 🙂
