A Little Christmas Around My Home
Snowflakes in the air Carols everywhere Olden times and ancient rhymes Of love and dreams to share. Sleigh bells in the air Beauty everywhere Yuletide by the fireside And joyful memories there. Christmas time is here We'll be drawing near Oh, that we could always see, Such spirit through the year. -from A Charlie Brown Christmas
Hello friends and welcome to Christmas Pudding! The little tykes above build a snowman every Christmas on my window sill above the kitchen sink and this little china deer gifted to me by my mother many years ago also spends time on the window sill this time of year.
Special touches around my home this year also include this poinsettia accompanied by an old-fashioned horse and sleigh in the center of the dining room table.
I am in the middle of baking some treats for the holidays. My dark fruit cake is made and put away and has been aging for a couple of weeks. Tomorrow Hubby will help me make donuts and my light fruit cake will get made on Friday. I am making only one kind of cookies this year and those will get made the first of next week. Of course there will be mincemeat tarts and pumpkin pie too but those will come for Christmas Day. When my children were growing up, I used to make fifteen kinds of sweets for Christmas. Of course we had a lot of company in those days too so it didn't take long for the treats to disappear. What kind of treats are you making this year? Before I close this post, I will give you a peek at this year's Christmas tree. It is decorated in white, gold, and pink with a touch of teal, much the same as last year's only there is no green, red, or blue.
I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season and are taking some much needed time to put your feet up and relax with a hot beverage. I have posted my Old-fashioned Christmas Tea on my other blog if you wish to check it out. Just click on the link above. Have a lovely week everyone!

Welcome to my Christmas blog! This is a blog about all things Christmasy and the magic that this special season evokes. Just like a Christmas pudding is a rich mixture of wonderful ingredients, so my blog is a mixture of sorts; collections, stories, poems, photos, and recipes, etc.
Please come in and make yourself comfortable. I hope you will join me for a mug of hot apple cider and Gingerbread. I believe Christmas is the most magical time of the year; a special time which should dwell in your heart all year round.
The sights and sounds of the season have a way of making one's heart glad and I hope you will find your visit here pleasant, merry, and bright. The Lord bless you!

Christmas is an event that one carries in one's heart, not just one day a year, but all year round.
I live a happy life in Green Gables country with my sweet hubby who is a retired pastor. We have three wonderful sons and five darling grandchildren. I love being a home maker and I thrive on bringing beauty and comfort into my home for my family and friends to enjoy. Life is made even richer by my faith in God who has taught me, "The joy of the Lord is my strength." I am so happy you have stopped by and I welcome you through my yellow door.
