Because we've been having Advent and Appetizers, we've really kept our house full this holiday season. The grands like to explore the tree. They love to look at the table (and so do the hungry adults!) to see what kind of tasty treats there are to gobble up. Some people get a little glum when Decembers are so full of holiday events and I've felt overwhelmed by a lot of hustle and bustle before. This year is very different. There has been time to make hearty eats and a few tasty treats. I made some honey whole wheat bread and even though the top of the loaf looked a bit floppy, the crusts and soft inside taste sweet and good.
I ordered everything I needed as far as a few gifts go ONLINE. That's so easy!
We rarely invite guests for dinner anymore because there are always kids and grands to enjoy and they go home early so we can go to bed. We're host wimps, I say. I like it when loved ones sit in the kitchen chairs while dinner is cooking.
Sam drew a picture of the living room and included herself and Plum. She did a nice job on the wing chairs!I love Birdie's "Christmas Table" very much. I think the fire is just right and the strings of lights on the tree are perfect. She was happy with her curtains and the mug of hot chocolate.
I wish you happy scenes with cozy old chairs and mugs of hot chocolate. I wish you homestyle gatherings with elbow-to-elbow huddles around delicious treats. I also wish you quiet moments by the tree where you can feel great love and peace.
