What Christmas Looked Like Here
We take off 4 to 6 weeks around Christmas, and we'll be starting back on Monday. But here's a quick look at what Christmas 2012 looked like.
We finally had snow that stayed. The children began their reindeer games with bury the easiest victim in the snow. It's much better than leaves for hiding someone.
The guilty culprits.
Making candy to send and gift to various friends and family. The caramels and chocolates were by far our favorite. We hope you got to sample some.
Preparing the meat for the tamales. We made two beef tongues- thanks Gusto and Chappy! We also made a pork shoulder to be sure there was enough meat. Then Christmas Eve, we crammed 37 people into our house. It was amazing, crowded and fun.
I spent a lot of time knitting and finishing projects that I wanted to do.
