Taking Down the Cards


I was taking down the Christmas Cards and thought that I should really take a quick picture of what I use. Not the best pictures but it should give an idea. I love getting cards but I must admit it takes a lot to get me to finish making out cards myself and then getting postage and then mailing them!

This wire holder looks pretty nice without the cards but as the cards get added in it becomes more colorful and filled with the warm wishes of the friends and family giving us the cards.

Gingerbread Cake


I made Gingerbread at home with the grandson and I made it at work too. I really like this recipe or maybe anything that is an excuse to add whipping cream. Really it has a nice spice balance and a truly old fashioned taste. My seniors really enjoyed it as a sensory experience and it brought back a bunch of memories. I am not sure why Ginger "bread" isn't made much anymore. People think that they are about to get a rather hard cookie when you offer Gingerbread.

I am so sorry I didn't take a picture.

Welcome to Liz's Christmas Home

Here are a few images from Elizabeth's lovely home.


















Christmas Dinner at Liz's

We had a lovely dinner at Elizabeth's houses on Christmas Day.


The dishes belonged to Bob's Grandmother Campbell. That is his Mothers Mother. Elizabeth was happy to receive them. What a treasure. Don't they look wonderful for a Christmas celebration.


She placed the food on her sideboard and had the extra dishes there.






 Ollie didn't want to be left out of the pictures.
