I just finished my 4 pies and am going to start on a cake and maybe venture onto these. If you don't hear back from me it's because my bum is suddenly much too big to get into my computer chair:) From the sounds of it, it will be well worth it. Seriously check that blogger out! I may have to try everything she chronicles but I plan to pace myself because it don't wish the diabetes and heart disease on my nearest and dearest.
We have tried, just like every year, to make this season less about "stuff" and more about our faith. As usually I am failing miserably. I wonder if everyone feels this way or is it just me? I am failing to pass on the importance of Christs birth to my precious, sugar filled offspring. Will they even know why we race around like crazy people for a month, buying, buying, buying? Can they feel that underneath it all should be a deep sense of peace, joy and mostly love? That we give gifts because the greatest gift of all was given to us? I'm not sure but I hope so.
I hope this Christmas is filled with love and joy for you and yours. I pray Gods peace and blessing for those who I know are grieving this season. May you be able to rest in God's great love.
Over here we will be celebrating our savior's birth in the fashion we've grown accustomed too. It mostly involves a revolving door of family and tons of food. I can't wait! My poor sister-in-law has taken on the unenviable task of Cooking The Turkey. Yes, she may need psychiatric help at the end.
"Merry Christmas from our family to yours!"
