Our kitchen has been a bustle of activity the past few days. The girls have been busy with their holiday baking. They've had their heads together, pouring over all our many, many holiday baking books for inspiration and ideas. They have a long list of yummy things they plan to make. They do keep it all rather traditional though, so things move along at an even pace. I just take the list, provide the ingredients, step back and let them have at it. So far they've made gingerbread cookies and sugar cookie cut-outs. Banana bread is baking now. Oh, it all smells sooo good. I think blueberry scones and snowballs are next on the list. They have me down for fudge and pan shortbread. I think I can manage that. The Mister is our official taste-tester. And it's also his job to make sure there's a good supply of Christmas music playing in the background. Got all my gift wrapping done. Kicking back a little, taking it all in.
Company is coming, so I will take this time to wish everyone a wonderful holiday, a very Merry Christmas full of warmth and cheer, sugar plum dreams, safe travels and lots of sweet things.
