A Merry Little Christmas...







Flour dust, cookie dough and sprinkles grace the counter tops, while our sweet little daughters watch the sugar cookies bake through the oven doors.   The timer goes off and out comes a tray of sugar cookies made by little hands.  The farmhouse table is filled with racks of sugar cookies cooling, sprinkles of red and green is shaken across the cookies and onto the table.  Our little puppy stands looking up, waiting for clumsy little hands to drop a cookie or two.   Slow days don't come by chance here at our little farmhouse, we create them.

FOR UNTO YOU IS BORN IN THE
 CITY OF DAVID A SAVIOUR , 
WHICH IS
CHRIST THE LORD!

Merry CHRISTmas, From the Farmhouse.

  2. What a precious post! I just love the pictures of your girls making those delightful cookies! We have a special cookie making tradition too with our kids, only this year I don't know if we'll do it or not, because my "kids" aren't kids any longer, they are both in college! Where did the years go? I do not know. Enjoy every precious moment! Your tree and living room are lovely too! Hugs to you today :)

  3. I always enjoy your pictures! When my girls were little, we along with my niece, decorated sugar cookies every year. They grow up so fast. But...Last year I didn't buy a gingerbread house kit, and after Christmas they asked why...I assumed that they thought they were too old, but behold...they wanted to do it. I'm ready this year!
