I’m not sure how we got here so quickly, but it is already December. The advent is upon us and we have been preparing for Christmas. We’ve already made our (traditional English) Christmas cake, which ages for several weeks and is frequently brushed with rum during that time. It smells delicious. There are plans to bake cookies, send cards, fill stockings and of course I have way too many things I want to make for the girls before Christmas…

The stocking are hung on the sideboard with care. Our little Christmas tree, which normally lives outside has taken its place of honor on top of the sideboard for the month of December. Vivien has no idea about Christmas, but Morgan does and she is very excited. These pictures were all taken by her.
