  1. Enjoy your Christmas with your beautiful family. I always love the faces of little ones at this time of the year…they are so eager for the celebration to arrive.

  2. Well, it may be too late, but steam pudding and cranberry cake may be coming your way on Christmas day. Maybe better late than never. Love, Grampa

  3. Thank you for your wonderful, warm, genuine, inspirational, and sincere blog. Your passions are seen within every single one of your posts. I am looking forward to your blog in 2013. I hope you and your loved ones have a joyous and peaceful holiday!

    1. Thank you! The ice lanterns are easy if you have some cold weather.(at least about -5- -10 C) Fill buckets with water and let them sit outside overnight. In the morning bring them inside and turn them upside down running some hot water over the bottom of the bucket until the ice lantern falls out. The top of the lantern will have a thin layer of ice that I remove and pour the unfrozen/remaining water from the inside out. Bring outside and place a candle inside.
