Yule: Ninth Day

Today the three cookie bakers were busy as ever, making bon-bons, pressed cookies, and decorating the sugar cookie cut-outs. We laughed and teased one another about interesting color choices. Adam was aghast at Olivia's green reindeer, but his white one with pink antlers was perfect. Other cookies we marvelled at, all oohs and ahhs. And sometimes, you just can't have enough red hots on one little cookie.

Of course a few breaks in between batches were necessary.

a bit of down time

For a simple and easy dinner, we've resurrected Alex's childhood family tradition of having fondue for supper. It was very gouda.

We had another full day (and it hasn't ended for Alex and I, eh hem, there's wrapping calling our names), but it was another day full of love, too. From our home to yours, a blessed, loving and merry holiday to you all.
