Cookies and a rick-rack apron


by Phoebe
This morning after breakfast mother and father made our favorite Christmas cookies which have been made in our family for generations. Like the toffee, they have a bit of butter in them, too! Mother was excited to have the house all clean and ready for guests once the baking was done. She then had time for a favorite activity, which is an afternoon at her sewing machine. Today she made some last-minute gifts for my cousins- some sweet dress and apron sets for their dolls. When she was finished sewing, it was fun to try them on. This dress and apron are a perfect fit for me, too! Afterward, I enjoyed a nice little peaceful moment looking at the bright snow outside our window. I love winter.
