Christmas recital

 Yesterday, we gathered with several other homeschooling families to hear our children recite poetry and play various piano pieces which they have been working on this past fall. We had a wonderful time together, eating, talking and playing while a snowstorm blanketed our area.
I made chocolate lollipops for all the children and Seth helped me drill holes in two cedar logs to display them. I added various sprinkles and even crushed candy canes to some of the lollipops this time making them a bit more festive and crunchy.
In addition, I thawed some phyllo pastry to make two different kinds of finger food snacks:
Brie, granny smith apple, pecan, maple syrup, dusted with cinnamon
Boursin, mandarin orange, walnut, sprinkled with cumin

I also packaged up some edible treats and decorative ornaments for my mama friends who teach my children and provide meals on co-op days. Getting to mess around with pretty paper, decorations, tissue paper, ribbon and more is so satisfying in between taking care of laundry, lessons, kids, cats, and cooking. My heart is full of thankfulness for my fellow mamas who cheer each other on toward love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24)


  1. This all looks like so much fun! The filo dough snacks are brilliant - and appetizing :-) I like the way you made the food so beautiful that it's part of the cheery decor. Merry Christmas!

  2. Thank you! And Merry Christmas to you as well!
