Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star above the highest bough
And have yourself a Merry Little Christmas now.
I actually love the Christmas preparations..I love feeling cozy..indoors..looking outside..baking things:)There is NO place like home..every time we come home we say..I just love coming home..there is something so safe,private,and cozy about home.
Any size ..
Sometimes pretty Christmas songs and light pouring in...
The tree is up and is festooned with meaningful decorations..nothing matchy matchy..
memories..family..friends..events..moments in time..my baby Jesus in our crèche was mine as a child♥
The Littles have grown so MUCH..
Adamo is 17
Giuliana is 15
Lucas is 11
Max is 9
Noah is 8
Oli is 7
Onto the beginning of baking..and every recipe..I will try and halve like this one..
Starting w/ shortbreads..my faves..
these are a new recipe..that you can find HERE~
I am the tester..remember?:)Not a creator of recipes..a taste tester:)
These are jam filled almond shortbreads.
..the boys from here on end will get useful things..w/ some whimsy..
my girls..I love what I put in them:)
My mom always had the dearest..simplest things.
A highlight for me.
I have funny things this year..yet useful:)For the girls..and the boys won't be jumping for joy..neck warmers..lots of socks:)..mittens..better find one last fun thing for their stockings..
If you have time..listen to one of these artists singing this famous song.
Rosemary Clooney..her voice ♥
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight~
I LOVE this song..
Above..a few of my favorite artists singing it..have no idea why..but this is one of the Christmas songs that make me cry..I do have a few..;)
