Snow this morning on our pines.
The view of our neighbors hill from our place.
Emily found some icicles and
brought them in the milk house to show us.
Helped hay and bed the cows.
They are so happy they don't have to slop around
in the snow. Barn is about 60-65 degrees. Feels
cozy!!! Also, turned on some Christmas tunes for
Emily loving on her barn cats, Lola and Gomer.
We did a little bit more decorating. Found some old ornaments that belonged to my Grandma, I don't hang them on the tree for their own safety! So, I tucked them in a nice pie plate and tucked an old snowman in the middle. It sits on my island in the kitchen. Looks cheerful!
Also have been doing some cookie and candy making. Found a good recipes for Cherry Crisps and Peppermint Bark. I will post recipes tomorrow for these. I want to make some Peanut Butter Blossoms today, before the Hershey Kisses are all gone, and need to get those peppermint chip cookies made. Will be leaving some goodies this coming week for our mail carrier, milk hauler and his wife, and our feed guy, and anyone else who pops in! This is the fun part!
I snapped this picture of Emily, right after the tree was decorated. She is really having fun! Loving every minute of the Christmas season. I'm so glad! Making sure that we do something fun each day, bake cookies, decorate, read a Christmas book or watch a Christmas video. So far her favorite movie is A Charlie Brown Christmas, it's mine too. She loves it when I keep the holiday songs playing in the kitchen, non-stop, except for when the radio station plays the hockey game, then we stick our CD's in.
Hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season! Be safe when out and about with the snow and ice.
