Same ...but a little bit different

Hi again Everyone.  Well my Two Favourite Little People have returned to home and school today and of course the house is dreadfully quiet and empty.  I keep thinking I hear someone calling 'Hey Granma . . . '.  We had wonderful holidays and did lots of fun stuff together.  My waistline is glad they have gone home though as we did LOTS of baking and of course eating of the said baking.  Chocolate Brownie to die for.  Banana Cake . . . . with Chocolate Icing.  Double Chocolate Chip Cookies.  Are you detecting a theme here??? Yes you're right . . . . . ANYTHING with CHOCOLATE in it was the order of the day.  I have to say that they are pretty good Little Cooks for not quite 11 and just turned 9.  Tayla, the 9 year old, cracks eggs on the side of the bowl just like the professionals do.  Something I cannot do and never could even before my fuzzy finger days!!!  Anyway on to tonight's post - more Christmas decorations.  A silver version of the one I posted the other day and a slightly different one with a greeting across the front.  I just love making these.  You need to be patient as they do take a little time but so satisfying.  A friend and I are off on a wee road trip tomorrow to see the rhododendrons in full bloom (we hope) in Kimbolton, which is about a 3 hour drive from home.  Can I feel a Thelma and Louise day coming on??? Thanks for looking today.
