The wreath has been hung, the tree is decorated, one last batch of cookies are baking, my Holiday Tablerunner is finished and Jack has been accessorized.
Tomorrow we will celebrate with family and on Christmas Day even more family. I am grateful for the slower pace of things this year since the kids are grown and there is not that usual hustle bustle as in years past full of school recitals, toy shopping, Christmas caroling, gingerbread house making, insane marathons of gift wrapping and stressing about getting it all done on time. Everything is done and now we can relax and enjoy the Holiday

How long ago were these traces of her baking left on these pages?
As I carefully looked for the publishing date I came across where my grandma wrote her name in the front of the book and I excitedly showed my daughter as my eyes began to well up with the memories. I quickly recovered myself, not wanting my daughter to see me getting misty (she gets all freaked-out when I get sentimental). We were here to bake some cookies and so we did...
