Traditional Christmas Baking 2015

Always a tradition, remains a tradition.

Our Christmas baking day with the girls would remain a big part of the season.

 As always, it's a three-man deal. The girls and their Papa. Great teamwork there.

 Always a bit stressful, yet a complete success (well, almost always).

 Always a creative time.

Always a fun time.

IC's St. Nicholas Thoughts


St. Nicholas Day was also the second Sunday of Advent.

The girls are now 11 and 13 years old.

I was teasing them the night before that they still need to prepare their boots for St. Nicholas, otherwise, he might miss our doorstep. They simply smirked.

Who would have thought? Before the night ended, I saw their boots lined up near the door :-)

They got their gifts, of course, but this year, I forgot about chocolates, ooops!

I thought they would not say anything. That's what I thought!

IC came to me a few hours ago and asked me why they didn't get any chocolates this year? She protested the lack of sweets!

I cannot tell her that I forgot. Instead I told her that I thought they would appreciate more gifts replacing the chocolates. But no, apparently, chocolates and St. Nicholas day belong together.

Okay, now I know.
