Merry Christmas! 2013

Merry Christmas to All! 
We are enjoying our holiday with baking and crafting and wrapping!
I did not do as well as I would have liked with gift giving; we were still shopping on line right up to December 20th. As I say every year, I will plan in advance and pick my crafts well before the Fall! Here's to my resolution to be ready with wonderful gifts long before December 2014 begins!
We did make a few homemade gifts, which I will post about later. One I will share is the homemade lemon extract. I made vanilla extract last year and really enjoy the convenience of a large quantity of it. Used it for baking many times and refilled one bottle with more vodka which is steeping for future use. The lemon extract smells wonderful and will be ready in a month. I hope the recipients like it as well. 

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

Happy New Year 2014!
