Baking cookies for his godmother

My son baked cookies for his godmother.

She and her husband are from Spain, 
living in Luxembourg, 
and we adopted our sons on the same day, 
from the same home in Johannesburg.
A friendship for life.

Christmas presents - the Little House series

I ordered these three out of print books from Alibris somewhere in November and asked my husband
to give them to me for Christmas.

"On the Other Side of the Hill" makes
 "The Rose years" complete.

Just the sight of them makes me happy
every time I pass my bookcase.

"On top of Concord Hill" is the third book I own from
"The Caroline years". These are harder to
find and therefore more expensive.

"Christmas with Anne" is a little gem.
My daughter (who doesn't speak English)
immediately recognized the picture on the
cover ("Matthew insists on puffed sleeves"
 from Anne of Green Gables).

Books always make great gifts!

Old and new family games
