Its snowing outside tonight, and there is a warm, fire crackling and snapping in the wood stove. I have a nice pot of soup on the stove and a couple of pies in the oven. It is quiet and cozy, just Steve and I together. A nice moment to catch up on a little blogging while dinner finishes cooking. As the "snow" and "wood stove" imply, we are still in Colorado; perhaps some of you were wondering. Our Nathan and Himilce and the precious grands went home to North Carolina on Wednesday. I tell you what, having them here with us these last few months has encouraged and blessed us so much; It was very hard to let them go. I have no problem saying that we are definitely those type of parents that love to have our children and grandchildren around and about us.
I've been doing a little Christmas decorating around the house. I also bought some flowers and greenery to decorate with. We have some family coming in this week, and I look forward to cooking a nice Christmassy meal for them. Here are a couple more bits and pieces of our December:
Here is "Sugar Bug". She is stirring the Laundry Soap that she and her Mama made this week; is this cute or what?
There is something so clean and lovely about homemade laundry soap.
We had a cookie decorating party last week....what a great time that was.
Pure childhood delight; to have complete freedom to the access of cookies, icing, sprinkles, and candies.... at least one day a year.
Happy December Everyone. May your days be Merry and Bright.
