The stockings are hung, the amaryllis is blooming, and the tree is lit and be-tinseled. We have an ample stash of poppycock, mince tarts, my grandmother’s almond crescent cookies, and more, all safely squirreled away from Tom and the kids so we have something to show for our efforts on Christmas and Boxing Day. Oh, and a moose roast from a hunting friend and crown roast of pork for Christmas dinner. The wooden snowflakes and festive holiday bunting are hung at the windows. The kids run up and down the hallway with rolls of wrapping paper, whispering and giggling. It’s cold, snowy, and very Christmassy outside but we are warm, happy, and cozy in our house, looking forward to relaxing and visiting with family and friends.
Wishing you all a peaceful, joyful Christmas, from all of us at Farm School.
