Day 355 #Project365

 

355-365, cookie baking

My little elf was very helpful and looking very happy in our last day of baking. I love baking, so these pre-Christmas baking days are one of my favourite days in the year. The house smells wonderful with the smell of cookies baking in the oven, and I truly enjoyed listening to the non-stop chatters of my little girl, who broke into Christmas songs every now and then while she dusted the cookies with sugar.

My mom did a lot of baking too before Christmas when I was a kid. I remember I used to just watch her, and patiently waited to taste anything coming straight from the oven. Those were the good times! I have no memory of me helping her (because I probably didn’t), but I remember I ate a lot of the ‘dud’ ones, you know, the not-so-perfect-in-shape freshly baked cookies. Or ate whichever I could get and got kicked out of the kitchen straight away.

Sigh…. Christmas always makes me feel so homesick…

Day 340 #Project365

 

340-365, trimming tree

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

The Christmas tree decoration was today. Elf 01 and elf 02 were working together to help me decorate. Lovely little elves they are, working so well together. I could just watch them for hours…

Day 339 #Project365

Despite the intention, our tree is still not up yet. I’m still busy prepping, selecting ornaments, thinking, or making new ornaments, as I always do every year. I probably enjoy this part more than the actual tree decorating. This drives my kids crazy, of course, because all they want to do is to decorate our Christmas tree, especially after looking at all these colourful and sparkly things lying (systematically) around.

Won’t be long now…
