A big thank you

to everyone who left such positive and encouraging comments on my last post about my CMK DT entry! I feel overwhelmed and blessed to have such a wonderful online community of friends!!

I always wanted to share my photos of the day for the past week with you today:

Tuesday, Dec. 2: We put up our tree and the lights in the evening.

Wed, Dec.3: Jonah, playing in the backyard after school.

Thursday, Dec. 4: Sage, helping me bake.

Friday, Dec. 5th: Again, Sage helping me bake!

Saturday: Dec. 6th: Meringue kisses.

4 egg whites
1 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 to 6 drops of green food colouring
non-pareils sprinkles (optional)
Beat egg whites with a mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Gradually add sugar while beating. Add vanilla and food colouring.
Put in a pastry bag with a star tip. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. Create mini Xmas trees by making a spiral form with the pastry bag. Sprinkle with non-pareils. Bake at 200F for 2 hours. Cool. Store in a tupperware container.

Sunday, Dec. 7: we finally decorated the tree after church.

Monday, Dec. 8: Austin and Jonah stayed home from school because they weren't feeling well.

Thanks for looking!

I always enjoy your weekly photos, Leigh! Your kiddos are just so adorable. Hope they're feeling better? So much crud going around right now, and such a yucky time of year to be sick.
