Hello all! I hope you are enjoying the run up to Christmas. Here I have been doing some baking, and last night we had the wonderful experience of all three sitting at the table together to do some decorating. You don’t appreciate such ordinary things when you’re healthy, but this is the third time that the Dafter has been able to sit at the table for more than a few minutes in the past three weeks. Hooray!
We came up with some that we were rather pleased with:
I was very happy that I’ve been able to make pfeffernüsse (bottom right, below) and also spritz cookies (on the right, below). Last year things were so difficult, I wasn’t really able to do my usual baking, so again I hugely appreciated it.
We had a good laugh doing our decorating, because frankly some of our efforts were lamentable!
Anyone care for a bell smeared with tomato paste? Or a Pac-Man piece of holly?
They all taste fine, though. And it was just great to have fun together and see the Dafter able to sit and move about for a bit longer. I’m pleased to tell you that she has also made it back to school, on two occasions, for 20 minutes and then for half an hour. We plan to continue building up after the holidays, God willing.
I have been so taken up with various things that I’ve had very little time to comment on blogs, and I’m really looking forward to a good catch-up over the holidays.
I hope you’re all enjoying the season too!
