American Christmas III

Made in American canning jars. Currently awaiting to be filled with a deliciously smelling recipe in the crock pot!

Decorating a gingerbread house at the church Christmas party. Gingerbread making in North America has its origins in the traditions of the many settlers from all parts of Northern Europe who brought with them family recipes and customs. By the nineteenth century, America had been baking gingerbread for decades.

We had a wonderful evening with our friends. Lots of wonderful food, good coffee, and most importantly our friends gathering together to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

I have always like Nalgene bottles. Morgann has had a Nalgene sippy since she was a wee-one, but this is the new BPA-free version. American made.
