First it snowed. And snowed and snowed. And then it rained. Craziness. Pouring pouring rain. Our seasons seem to be a bit confused this year. It sure is plenty cold though, so really it may as well snow, tomorrow is the first day of winter after all...
I have been quite busy with gift making, though it is likely I have spent way too much time on this advent calendar. I have already asked the family to please realize that the calendar is a big part of their Christmas present this year. I think they are pleased.
Mary brought big smiles when the girls saw her Sunday morning.
(Sorry, poor pictures, I didn't even get a chance to take these photos until past dark tonight, but still wanted to share..)
Our little angel even found a nice spot to hover above everyone, guiding all with her shining star of course.
There is still lots of sewing to do, a bit of knitting, Jason has a woodworking project going on, and the girls have been busy little elves. I guess I will have to fill you in on all the handmade holiday gifts after Christmas.
Tomorrow we will celebrate Winter Solstice and start our holiday baking by making Snowdrop Cookies. We plan to do much more baking on Christmas Eve day, finally putting this vintage cookie press we have to good use. Fun! And the day before Christmas Eve is my birthday. Quite eventful around here! (For us at least...)
Wishing you all wonderful happy beautiful cozy holiday celebrations with your families!
Blessings and love to all!!!
