a glimpse of our christmas

Lights on Texas Cedar
There was a very proud Joseph
He took his role quite seriously.
There were Christmas bakers...
He takes baking seriously too.
There was new fallen snow...well, of sorts.
The house was filled with the sweet aroma of gingerbread and sugar cookies
There were Christmas wrappings
and gifts for our very good friends delivered on Christmas morning
Our Christmas breakfast included a mile high stack of gingerbread pancakes with lemon syrup, apple cinnamon cured bacon lacquered in brown sugar and holiday fruit salad.  This year I kept it simple, using our everyday plates.  Not breaking out my Spode (Christmas china) enabled us to throw our dishes in the dishwasher and hit the road earlier than usual to celebrate Christmas with my parents.
Star of wonder...caught this image on Christmas Eve.
Marshmallows roasting on an open fire...
