The boys were really excited about decorating a tree outside for the birds...we chose the forsythia bush just outside of our living room window so that we can watch our little friends as they feast.
At our dinner table, we each took turns lighting a candle from our center pillar, and saying a few words and prayers.
Most of our family holidays have food in them somewhere, so we tried out a new recipe for honey cookies - a warm and bright sweet treat. I would share the recipe, but it still needs a bit of work. They were good, with a nice honey taste, but a little too sweet and not quite the right consistency. We will work on it and have it perfected by nest year, I am sure!
And before bed, stories by the fire - the heat and light of the fire on the boys bare skin was beautiful to watch, and I am sure to feel.
