Acceuil/ Welcome

( "Acceuil" means welcome which is the theme for the 4th Advent week. )

Hope everyone is ready for the big day! Oh! I don't mean the shopping . the wrapping or decorating but ready to "welcome " the family and friends with warm hearts. Ready to "welcome" the new born Child. Ready to "welcome" the person/persons who are different than us.
That is my Christmas wish for you all as we enter into the Christmas week.

Yes I feel I am ready... to celebrate: And this year Jesus' birthday cake is a family favourite Gum Drop Cake
******The night before cut and flour the gum drops with 1/2 cup flour and allow to set overnight making sure they are well separated.

Last Wednesday La Guilde had their Pot luck and Tea Towel Exchange
This one I received ..... Made by member Paulette Comeau.. Absolutely gorgeous...

It was a fun evening with beautiful people, and delicious food. For two hours "tea towels' entertained over 40 intelligent women, made us laugh and got us to know one another a bit more... Now that is the spirit of Christmas. !

I may not have time to blog again before Christmas so I wish you all the Merriest of Christmas filled with Joy, Peace and Happiness in abundance♥♥
