The first two weeks of December have been so full that we hadn't had time
to decorate our Christmas tree. So.....
...Thursday night was the night!
Matthew got to do a little light reading....
....and Jonathan got to have fun with one of the "flurries".
Our "critter-filled" tree
Today, we got to celebrate Grandma's 86th birthday!
The girls made her a chocolate cheese cake. Yum!
Kristin got to do the serving.
Here's one for the record books--mom's in two pictures!
Later this afternoon, the girls and I had our annual Christmas
tea with friends. It was a really fun time!
First on the menu--a snowman cake!!!
This is one we won't be saying never again about.
He is made with gluten free pound cake and was
delicious and sturdy!
Here's a close-up
We also had tasty gluten free slipper cookies.
Emily got the job of serving.
Helena looks a little concerned about the
snowman's fate--or maybe she was just hoping
to get a certain piece.
Oh dear, Mr. Snowman, you're losing your head!
After two particularly long days of travel, the girls and I
really enjoyed this year's tea with good friends!
