Picturing Christmas: December 16 - 21

As it turns out, preparing for Christmas has taken more time than I would have expected, so the blog has taken a bit of a back seat the last few days. I'll go ahead and assume that this trend may continue a bit through the rest of the holiday season. BUT, I'll continue to at least get the Picturing Christmas December photo challenge photos up. Today I'm putting up the 16th through the 21st. Perhaps I'll get the next group of pictures up before Christmas. Here's hoping!

 December 16: Mistletoe

I knew I didn't have any mistletoe in the house (and I'm not even sure if this is something that the Dutch consider part of a Christmas tradition); but I then realized I didn't know what it actually looked like. Thanks, Google!

 December 17: Silent Night 

I think it's hard not to think of the star over Bethlehem when thinking about "Silent Night".

 December 18: Santa 

We've had this Santa for a very long time. When we got married, it came along in the box of Mark's ornaments from childhood. And he fits nicely on our red chairs.

 December 19: Cookie 

My friend made some delicious German Christmas cookies and brought them over to share. Lekker!

 December 20: Candy Cane

This garland is extra delicious with the candy cane. And Little Man is always happy to have snoepjes (sweets) in close range.

December 21: Party

No "normal" Christmas party for us this year - but there's nothing wrong with a cookie making party! A total of 5 different kinds of cookies came out of this endeavor.


  1. I love the way you have done this post - really cool!

    Happy New Year to you and your family!

  2. Thanks, Molly! Happy New Year to you, too!
