Happy Holidays

Both of my kids are home for Christmas break, so I didn’t get out much to take photos. There were cookies to bake…


Lights to display outside…

Faux trees

And, a tree to decorate…

all the trimmings

There are more cookies to bake and a few more boxes to wrap. I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. Give thanks, give hugs, and keep peace in your heart.

    Sadly, my tree is up, but nearly naked, I’ve not yet made any krumkake, and forget about any outside decorations (but we live in the woods–none needed! :)

    Merry Christmas, Tara! :)
