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!
