Our annual breakfast with St. Nicholas can also be checked off the “celebrating december” list!  This year, some friends came along, and not surprisingly, it was even more fun.  Pancakes and sausages were inhaled, gingerbread men (and ninjas) were decorated, the horse-pulled wagon was ridden around the village, ornaments were coloured, letters were written, and lots of games were played.  I even finished a little stocking stuffer shopping (hand-crocheted bookmarks) in the general store.  If you’re itching to see the village all decked out for Christmas, it’s open this weekend coming up,  and there will be lots of activities to enjoy.

This weekend we are getting our tree, and we need to get serious about our Christmas baking.  I’d like to try my hand at peppermint bark and some mint chocolate truffles.  Of course, we’ll be whipping up old favourites like snowballs and molasses crinkles too.  Yum.
