Merry Making

The kids decorated sugar and gingerbread cookies.

Look, Mom!! No teeth!! (She lost 4 teeth in 2 weeks.)

We made 14 loaves of banana bread, cranberry bread, zucchini bread, and Scandanavian almond bread.

Making Thumbprint cookies

Mini-Amaretto Cakes

This Christmas season has been especially cozy and wonderful. We have received lots of snow, so we are definitely having a white Christmas. The kids have been having fun sliding around on the ice rink that Aaron made. I have been baking and cooking...they have been snacking and eating. This year we made toffee bars, chocolate cake balls, oyster crackers, petite pecan tassies, puppy chow, thumbprint cookies, gingerbread and sugar cookies, amaretto cakes, and loads of bread. Whew...sure am glad that sweets are not my tempting thing!

Merry Christmas to all of you. What a precious gift God sent in first sending a baby to this fallen world and then sending that grown man to the cross. His sacrifice was more wonderful and devastating than I can possibly comprehend. He is a good, good Father.
