I am not a baker. I’m just not.
I love to cook and entertaining is definitely my thing…but baking….no thank you!
I will buy whatever I need to to get out of it.
This is when it is good to have a sister that likes to bake.
I bought all of the dye free food coloring and dye/gluten free candy and my sister made all the gingerbread house pieces and gluten free sugar cookies.
My mom is here and she keeps going back and forth from our house to my sister’s house.
We all met at my sister’s house for the kids to make gingerbread houses and to decorate cookies.
Their cookies were so funny because at one point Benjamin pretty much dumped the bowl of candy on his cookie.
My mom and I kept on going back to the cream cheese frosting…just to make sure it was good enough for the kids.
Leave me alone!
Sometimes a woman needs multiple tablespoons of frosting to get through the day.
The kids are on official Christmas countdown.
I haven’t wrapped one present yet:-)
Christmas Eve will be at our home this year and Christmas day at my sister’s home.
I love that we live so close to each other.
I hope that this Christmas you are blessed with the deep knowledge that our biggest gifts never come the way we expect them.
I hope that as you celebrate Christmas with your friends and family I hope you are blessed with peace and quiet to truly appreciate the gift that was given.
It is in the quiet that we can really hear.
When we slow down.
Sometimes we need to be quiet and still enough to be able to hear a whisper.
“Go out and stand before me on the mountain,” the Lord told him. And as Elijah stood there, the Lord passed by, and a might windstorm hit the mountain. It was such a terrible blast that the rocks were torn loose, but the Lord was not in the wind. After the wind there was an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. And after the earthquake there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. And after the fire there was the sound of a gentle whisper.”
I Kings [19:11]-12
Enjoy the quiet this Christmas.
