Lemon Cranberry Scones

I subscribed to the "Smitten Kitchen" on Facebook and get daily updates on what they are making. While browsing their page I saw these delicious looking scones. I haven't really baked with fresh cranberries and this is the first recipe I had seen that strongly advocated the use of them. So I got what I needed at the store yesterday and baked them this good!!

Took a few pictures of the process...

Picture of the Day: First Snow

It snowed for the first time last evening.

I really do love snow. When it falls light, but steady, is my favorite. Reminds me of so many good memories as a child. I would go walking outside at night, all alone, feeling the flakes on my face and watching the snow drift out of the sky. Everything was so quiet, peaceful, and beautiful. I remember looking in the windows of our house and seeing the Christmas tree lit up and all my family inside. I loved moments like that.

And I wish for them back.

Have a great weekend.

Couples Christmas Dinner

We had our Christmas dinner with seven couples last Saturday. We also celebrated Papa 80th birthday. The evening was wonderful. Good food, conversation, and dancing made it a lovely time. Enjoy the pictures.
