Time To Bake and Make

Dear Friend,


Today I did more Christmas baking - with the help of my friend Rachel; we made: Chocolate 5-Minute Fudge, and my family's Chocolate Truffles.
Jeremie and I got our Christmas tree and decorated it all prettily. It's slightly "charlie-brownish" but then again, we're not spending Christmas in Alberta anyway.
I am just happy that we were able to get a tree for my first Christmas as a married person anyway.

My mother and father have a tradition where every year they buy a new ornament together; I decided that I would like to follow this tradition as well! Jeremie and I bought that little knitted stocking as our first ornament together. The reason we picked it is because...well...it was the only one we could agree on. *laugh*

I adore my nativity set, it's by the "Willow Tree" company, and I have been able to collect it over several Christmas' and birthdays as gifts. The only thing I'm missing now is the stable.

Christmas is coming quickly upon us, and I'm thrilled. If I don't post before Christmas, Merry Christmas to all of you, and God Bless in the coming year.

~ Jenny

You ARE your mother's daughter!!! Something to be proud of!
Your tree looks MUCH better than my first tree as a married lady! We had a aluminum foil start at the top that Sweetheart made. Also, he bought me a glass ornament that said "Our First Christmas Together 1979"...I still have it on my tree...that stocking on your tree will see many wonderful Christmas's!!!!
Merry Christmas Sweetie!! Give your Mom a BIG (((hug))) for me when you see her!!!
