It’s time to make it all come together. The tree is a small little thing on a table at the edge of the kitchen. It holds special ornaments made by some of my art friends and is sheltering a few gifts to torment the grand children.
My art group had a Christmas party last week, such a happy celebration after the busy show. We draw names and exchange gifts, visit and share a feast beyond compare. This flaming heart was my gift from Stephanie Brockway. Steph knows my sense of humor hence the words. I have wanted one of her hearts for a very long time, lucky me, thanks Steph.
We started baking yesterday, Jen made wonderful butter scotch cookies and I made some sugar cookies to be decorated by the family with great quantities of sprinkles, icing, and hot coco.
Apple pies for the freezer waiting to be baked Christmas eve.
I had some help emptying the cupboards and tasting cookies.
The parents of Natalie had new carpet installed so everyone including Nat must wear slippers in the house, a good rule. Her fathers shoes size 14 and her shoe size 4 &1/2.
I think Winnie will not be invited over, poor dog.
Winnie will be staying in today warm by the fire. She and I have had enough wet dog days for awhile.
Stay warm friends and enjoy the holidays and everything they offer you.
