As I was making ginger cookies last week, I took this picture. This is my mom's recipe. When I got married, she gave me a recipe box filled with our family recipes, written in her hand. It's one of the best gifts ever.
Here's a couple of close-ups of the tree - new this year
is the red ribbon, picked out by Sam.
Also new are the wee red mittens that I knit up.
Yes, I'm charmed by them.
My camera is always blurry with no flash, but I like
the way the lights look. I'll make the picture smaller,
and maybe you won't notice that it's out of focus.
