Getting ready for Christmas






Today the children are off to Andrews office to hand out their annual treats. Brogan, Aaron and Olivia are planning to take Noodle and some Bunnies to make it a little more festive. It was a major baking day yesterday with all of us helping older sister with her baking. I have said before that it is clear our Brogan has her Great grandfathers genes. He had his own bakery and had a passion for confectionery. I have brought out our little series of " favourite recipes" for all occasions and seasons. The children also made these beautiful mosaic Christmas cards of Mother Mary and babe. Once they had finished them, we lightly painted over them with some brewed tea. We are feeling the Christmas spirit here . Today we will open our Christmas potpourri that had been sitting for a couple of weeks. Soon the smell of oranges , berries and spices will waft through the home. We are itching to start putting up our decorations...

A peaceful weekend to all my visiting friends...

Thank you for sharing some of your Christmas plans. I really like the mosaic cards. They are beautiful. I am going to show them to my children and see if they might be inspired to make some.
Warm wishes.
