Christmas cookies by Sylvan. He went in big for massive quantities of colored sugar (surprised?) and in the top photo if you look carefully you can see a pair of red-sprinkled Christmas Pants, of his own making.
Another productive Sunday, filled with the smells of butter and sugar. Not so much a day for crafting, though. But housecleaning and readying ourselves for the family that will start trickling in next Friday and trickling out the following weekend. It will be family from both sides and we really do enjoy them all. I am a little sad to be working a few of those days, but it will be a nice calm change from the scene here at home!
This man, my husband Jake, is in charge of the meals and menus.
He loves planning out things in charts, dates, numbers of people present, etc. This photo is from a series where he was practicing looking cool and aloof in photos, getting coached by one of the best men for the job, Ryan.
Here's my mailbag for tomorrow; I hope you are not in line behind me at the PO, it might be a long wait. Packages for four different destinations. Eichenlaub Annuals beginning to make their way out into the world. I have been pining for a large stapler and on three occasions had the opportunity to borrow one...and forgot. The Annuals are slow to staple with just a standard size. Sorry to whine.
