I will be away for a bit but want to leave you with a couple photos. I’ll post more when I return.
Gingerbread snowmen with wood pick arms and raisin buttons.
The fun part of making cookies.
Lots of sprinkles!
Italian Sienese Nougat Candy
Wrapping each little square of Sienese Nougat Candy in cellophane. Washi tape worked great.
The first cookie tray for the company office.
My mom made the miniature tree under the cloche. I have several small forests of trees; this one is on top of the tall dining room book shelf.
We never see our tree lit until Christmas Eve. Every light in the house is turned off and the house is very dark. The light sets are turned on one by one according to the scripture. Here is the very first set, lighting the star at the top of the tree over the manger scene down below.
With a completely fused spine, I’m unable to get down to floor level to look through my camera lens so focus is hit or miss. But I love this photo and I can identify with a clueless sheep. Yet my Lord still watches over me tenderly.
The tree completely lit later Christmas Eve. We didn’t have time to put the ornaments on so there are very few. But the lights make the tree lovely!
