Advent is all about preparation. This week I've been preparing by baking Christmas cookies. Here, shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate and pecans or chocolate and sprinkles (for the kids!)~
It snowed last week and the pond froze over.
The grandgirls spent the night and helped us decorate the tree~
Hannah took them outside to play in the last of the snow. I stayed inside and took this through the kitchen window where I could keep an eye on the baking cookies. :)
