December was a month scattered with Christmas gatherings involving sweet yummies and treats. Here are a few pictures I snapped of some of the goodies we enjoyed. I can't capture on camera the fellowship in relationships, but food shots can help us remember the sweet times & tastes!
Annie made candy cane cupcakes for sewing class.
We attended a homeschool Christmas Party & Mom's Swap...A great time of passing on our unwanted items & bringing home some new things. I snagged clothing for almost everyone, a tin tea set for the sandbox, and several very nice books!

Riley passed on his slingshot & pocket knife and was thrilled to receive a bb pistol.
A different homeschool group gathered to bake cookies for local public workers. We dipped and dipped and finally dumped pretzels in chocolate, and ended up with a lot of different goodies! We were able to tour the Fire Station and Police Station as we delivered. Fun and education combined!

An evening Christmas party for the whole family.

The girls & I made cinnamon rolls for our neighbors and our own Christmas breakfast.
We enjoyed our time staying home for a relaxing holiday enabling us to go to a few local gatherings that we often miss because of traveling to be with out-of-state family. We did miss seeing our kinfolk, but are looking forward to making the trip to SC, VA, and OH this spring!
