On the 23rd and 24th Days of Christmas, Endless Baking and the Reason for the Season

My boys and I enjoy baking! the two days before Christmas was filled with baking in the kitchen! Christmas is a great time to share our love of baking with those we love. Being off from work gives me the time to bake and decorate the cookies with my boys.

We made some sugar cookies, as well as some French Macarons.




In between our batches of cookies, we watched a video shared by some family and friends on Facebook. It's a great reminder of the "reason for the season".


Christmas Eve evening ended with our family attending mass, thanking God for a year of wonderful blessings especially that of the love and happiness of friends and family we are surrounded with all year long, as well as all the material blessings that is more than what we deserve. 

Here are are after church!



Merry Christmas Eve to all!

    1. Thanks Melissa! Merry Christmas to you all too! Everyone who greeted my sons Merry Christmas on Christmas Day was greeted in return "Amen, Jesus is the reason for the season". Many were impressed! I was going to ask our pastor if he'd match Father Bertrand's donut offer ;)
