Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Merry Christmas!


A couple of bits of history here. If the dates on the photos are right (there’s a ? on both), I must have been about 4, and you can see that books were already in the picture πŸ˜‰

It's still not Christmas without at least 1 book!

It will just be the 2 of us for Christmas Day, but then Monday, we’ll be getting lots of company, including 5 of 6 grandkids. We’ll be making Candy Pie (aka Peppermint Fudge Pie) on Monday or Tuesday – it’s become a tradition around here. I first found the recipe in a leaflet from Kraft Foods years ago; the only difference from the recipe above is that it specifically calls for crushed Oreo cookies (filling and all) for the crust. I imagine the kids will get a kick out of crushing the candy canes πŸ˜‰

Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday – see you after Christmas!

  1. I can see the smile still!!! You were adorable and that adorableness has carried on. Thanks for the trip down memory lane. I still love black and white photography more than color. It just seems so much more “forgiving”. Hugs and Merry Christmas!!!

  2. Sweet! Merry Christmas!!

  3. Wonderful pictures! Merry Christmas to you and your family, and a happy, healthy 2012!

  4. Your pictures are adoable. Seeing your pictures made me remember many of my past Christmases . Sadly, most of those pictures were destroyed in the fire at my parents’ home but my memories are sharp and clear. Merry Merry Christmas and see you in the New Year.
