I sat down today to fill our my new calendar for 2016 and am so pleased with it. It is full of lovely prints of Carl Larsson's paintings and the choices that they made for each month are really spot on. It is exciting to see what day of the week our special days are going to fall on... I am kind of excited that Mother's Day and my Name's Day both fall on May 8th this year!
I have been obsessed with cranberry cakes since Christmas and have found a winning recipe! I made Cranberry Cake from The Kitchn Blog and wowza! It was good! Father John (who is not really a fruity cake person) enjoyed a slice and mentioned how much he liked it twice, so you know that it is a keeper! Fortunately, I was able to secure two extra bags of cranberries for the freezer and that means that we'll get to have some more! I do think that the recipe would be just as delicious with blueberries... we have lots frozen, so I'll experiment with that this coming week.
We have our last family Christmas party tomorrow. It is hard to believe that there are only a few days left of our Christmas. There are just two things left on our list of things to enjoy: decorating our gingerbread house and baking Christmas cookies together!
