So Much About Christmas
With the green and red had, this is Sydney, Robin's daughter. I have been spending time with her these past months. Every Wednesday after school, we get together to work with beads, fabric. I have become a teacher again. Nothing better. These are Sydney's friends that came to her house for a Christmas party. I was asked to be a part of it. Yeah!!
We made cookies. One batch was with flour. Sydney is wheat intolerant so the other batch was flourless. I have to find a cookbook and learn how to cook in this form. It was a long process making the doughs and rolling them out, cutting shapes, baking then painting with frostings. The four girls were so intent in this. It was amazing.
This is my ice cream maker. I brought the ingredients and they each had things to add. Not difficult this process. Watching the cream get colder and colder fascinated them. Then at the end they added the chocolate chips and each of them got to add a few drops of food coloring.
Suddenly everyone came out of the walls to eat this treasure. Doesn't take long for a batch of ice cream to disappear.
The end of the evening and now to contemplate. Four little girls and More fun than can be imagined.
