As the year is coming to a close we take time to continue some seasonal family traditions. Outside, collecting and foraging for items to decorate our mantel; pliable grapevines for wreaths, smooth shinny buckeyes, maple leaves, acorns and evergreens. Inside we gather with friends for our annual gingerbread people fiesta. The children look forward to making dough, shaping cutouts and slathering on a myriad of dried fruit, nuts, candy and icing for finishing touches. (This year the addition of the gingerbread ninja was a hit!) These are some of the sweet little things we cherish. And as the years go by and the children become teenagers there is something so special and wholesome to just being together to bake, laugh, eat, play games and maintain connections with the people we love.
We are praying for everyone, many blessings in 2013.
Happy New Year from the Soul Flower Farm crew!
