Since I spend so much time in my kitchen especially during the holiday season, I wanted to have the baby Jesus placed somewhere where He would get my attention. It seems that I am at the kitchen sink quite often washing cookie pans and batter bowls daily.
I found this little ornament at home over Thanksgiving and placed Him in a vintage urn.
I am never far from Him. This really keeps me focused on what the season is really about.
An afterthought came to me today when I was done baking. I had collected all my Christmas cookie and candy recipes from this cookbook, this drawer and that index card. I decided that this would be the last year I would scavenge through to find all my recipes. I made a New Year's commitment to myself. After this holiday season, I would compile all of my recipes into one place. Another blog has been born.
