It’s said that ice from Wenham Lake in the 1800’s was so clear that you could read the newspaper through a big block of it. Catherine is impressed. “Look at how clear it is, how pure! I’m not surprised that the Queen wanted it!”
Catherine wishes you a very happy New Year!
Her outfit ticked the boxes laid out for her: top, pants, sweater and shoes. Who am I to dictate color palate or size?
I love her sense of style!
I don’t always make cute desserts, but when I do they’re made of fruit!
While preparing to leave to see the Nutcracker with her grandparents, this one realized she had a hole in her glove. I love that her first inclination was to find a needle and thread!
The excitement of the moving sidewalk was only surpassed by surprising Grandma at the airport, on her birthday, no less!
Sweetest little gift under the tree!
Only second to Easter Sunday, there’s no church service that I enjoy more than Christmas Eve.
“What can I give Him,
Poor as I am?
If I were a shepherd
I would bring a lamb,
If I were a wise man
I would do my part,
Yet what I can I give Him,
Give my heart.”
With the last hours of secret knitting counting down, this little one came out of bed for some snuggles as I was racing to finish her gift. Not wanting to go back to bed, even as I encouraged her, and my not wanting to keep the knitting under the lap blanket made for some tricky moments, but she eventually nodded off on my shoulder and I continued on my knitting way. These Christmas secrets are hard to keep, but it is worth it!
