Favorite food at the holidays:

My go to recipe at the holidays for some years now has been Apple Spice Cake with Caramel Swirled Icing. I found the recipe about 6 years ago in a magazine and everyone loved it.
Favorite holiday tradition:
My favorite holiday tradition is one that we no longer participate in. All my life, growing up and into adulthood my extended family would get together on Christmas Eve at my grandmas. Many generations would pile in and share food. and laughter. It was a chance to catch up with everyone and it was what Christmas was all about. This tradition ended when my grandmother passed away. I suppose one of us could have taken over but somehow it just wouldn't be the same. I think this is one to treasure as a memory.
And finally here is my project to share with you. I made a wool candle mat. It is fast and fun.
I am a crappy photographer and it has been cloudy and rainy here so it is actually alot cuter than it looks. You can get the directions HERE and the template page HERE.
