It’s almost Christmas !

Christmas is almost here, I must admit the days leading up to Christmas are my favorite time of the year.

I have been baking Christmas cookies non stop for three days. Making on container at a time for friends, school bus drivers, teachers… This year we have the tallest tree we have ever owned, my husband’s pride. Kids have been enjoying hiding the pickle ornament so much that they broke it…but have attached another plastic toy on a string to make up for it. They have prepared their list for Santa, and my 2 year old daughter is expecting a live horse on Christmas night. Hopefully the little pink plastic poney Santa actually got her will make her forget all about the horse idea.

We waited in line to have their pics taken with Santa, the same Santa as last year…My husband called me a Christmaszilla because i insisted on waiting for the same guy. I think over the years my kids will come to really cherish those Santa pics.

This year I made several kind of Christmas cookies (or Bredeles – that’s how we call them in Alsace)…Tomorrow is Christmas eve and i have already ran out…I’ll have to make even more next year !

My son picked some nice containers for his teachers and we gave them as presents. It has almost became a tradition now, and the second time i post about it.

Ready to be given away !

    I’ll leave a trail of crumbs so those lemon-ginger spiral cookies can find their way to unroll themselves right onto my palate!! ¡Se me hace la boca agua!
