Christmas home tour
I've already shown off my nativity set and my childproof Christmas tree, but here are a few more details for the Christmas Tour of Homes: a poinsettia, a library book (Christmas Mice by Richard Scarry), my favorite Gwen Frostic wrapping paper, and serendipitous red and green Dutch ovens from Ikea.
I haven't really gone out of my way to decorate for Christmas: we don't have a lot of space in our apartment, and little Red Chief is good at wreaking havoc. All our current decorations are up high. For future years, I'm hoping to make a cloth nativity set that's safe for little hands and some family stockings. I'd also love to find a wreath for the front door. Maybe the after-Christmas sales will send something my way.
As for cookies, enjoy some peppermint pinwheels! If you're feeling charitable, feel free to help me decide what to make for Christmas dinner.
