I’m heading over to Conversion Diary to participate in 7 Quick Takes Friday with other Catholic bloggers.
1. Ski Hill Fun
Last Saturday, I spent the afternoon at the local ski hill with my youngest son. I don’t ski, but he enjoys skiing, so I stayed in the lounge beside the fireplace with this view (photo) listening to Christmas songs on the radio. Because it’s the beginning of the ski season, very few people were on the hill and no waiting for the ski lift. It was a relaxing time for me and an exciting time for him.
2 and 3. Pakenham Five-Span Bridge
We live in the country near Pakenham, Ontario. Pakenham is a beautiful little town with a unique five-span stone bridge.
4. Jell-O Cookies
Since she worked from home full time, my mother rarely baked cookies. The exception was Christmas time. In the 70’s, she began making festive pink and green Jell-O cookies. Here’s the recipe.
6. No Room at the Inn Cartoon
This was actually the very first cartoon we created for Family Foundations Magazine six years ago. It wasn’t the first cartoon we ever did, however. We have about 25 years worth of Christmas card cartoons (I’ll be sharing some of those next week…)
7. Carol of the Bells 2010
My husband and three of my sons performing “Christmas Eve at Sarajevo” Carol of the Bells back in 2010.
