I thought you might just want to see what the dessert I made on the last post, looks like when sliced. It seemed like everyone enjoyed this old recipe. It was fun hearing from many of you, who also remember making this in earlier years. It will probably be a long time until I make it again because my husband finds it too tempting.
This afternoon they stayed with me. We painstakingly, and with so much anticipation, wrapped their mother's Christmas gift, the snow globes we made earlier in the month. They wrapped the snow globe in tissue, put it in a box, wrote their names on the box(at least two of them did), and all helped tie the bow.
We talked at length about Christmas secrets, but when their mother came to pick them up, they just could not help themselves.
No...they could not. Before I knew what happened, they handed her the gift and said a hearty "Merry Christmas". Why not? How precious that they just could not wait until Christmas morning. What fun to see her excitement and reaction. They were thrilled!
I guess it is better that could not wait to give, instead of not being able to wait when it comes to opening their gifts. It is better, right?
Meanwhile, these two were happy sitting at the kitchen table eating their yogurt. The holiday season has not phased them at their age, but they will learn soon enough.
Me...I am feeling behind in all that I have to do. I will get it all done, but until then, I am hoping to enjoy the moments of each day.
