"And I had but one penny in the world,
thou should'st have it to buy gingerbread."
William Shakespeare
. . . . .
Some gingerbread tea
{Celestial Seasonings Holiday tea}

Some gingerbread with a bit of whip.

Some happy kids.

  The girls helped me make the gingerbread, and we had a lovely tea party.
It really was a most enjoyable afternoon.  I am savoring these days of childhood.
. . . . .
Things are morphing once again in our household which always leads me to ponder change.   In some ways I enjoy change, it makes things feel fresh and gives a new perspective which often results in a boost of energy or encouragement.   Other times change leaves me feeling rather melancholy. 
It helps me to know that God's perfect plan is unfolding, and I can find joy in that. 
"There are souls in this world which have the gift of finding joy everywhere
and leaving it behind them when they go."
 Frederick William Faber
I want to be one of those souls!


  1. Wish I could just *POP* into your kitchen right now. Blanchets + tea + gingerbread = heaven! xoxo from CA
