A Day of Christmas Baking

Yesterday we girls enjoyed a day of baking.

Something we didn't take for granted this year.

But we enjoyed it to the full.

Bing Crosby in the background
singing "Let it Snow"

Cosy un-summery weather

Christmas cookies, same as every year.

Only this year the girls practically did it all themselves!
A big change from the stressful old days,
when my helpers were little.

We also made Christmas Cake and Crackle Cookies
and Gluten-free/Dairy-free cookies for me.

And let's zoom out a bit on the scene, shall we?

A new fridge, an unexpected necessity last week, 
as if the ceiling being cut out and Laura finishing Yr 6 wasn't enough for one day ....

... and the staircase.

Hopefully by next Christmas this season of building chaos
will be forgotten!
