The Holiday Season

We are having a wonderful holiday season, beginning with Thanksgiving at grandma's cabin in the mountains. We love the cabin for it's cozy atmosphere, the smell of piƱon burning in the fireplace and grandma's wonderful cooking. Outside the air is crisp and clean and it feels like we are on top of the world.

Grandma's Puppy
Grandma has a puppy name Tiny and Lily Mae loves to snuggle with him as she sits by the fire.

Baking Gingerbread Cookies
Maggie Rose got to help bake gingerbread cookies, and boy did they smell good when they came out of the oven. We also decorated the cabin with paper snowflakes. And, it just so happens that it began to snow outside or real!

So Tempting!
Lily Mae was very, very tempted by those cookies and asked if she could have some.

Maggie Rose
"Of course you can have some!" said Maggie Rose. "I made them to eat, not look at!" We know she was very proud of those cookies.

Would You Like One?
Lily Mae was happy to share.

The snow started to fall harder and harder and grandma said we would probably have to stay a few extra days if the roads were covered with deep snow. We all secretly hoped that would be the case. None of us wanted to leave this wonderful place.
