Advent, Day 23

Fergal finished work today for the holidays, so it really feels like Christmas now…

We were doing some Christmas visits today- so baked this morning- mince pies (they overflowed with sweet stickiness in the oven!) and jars of mincemeat,

and gorgeous light, thin vanilla shortbread cookies:

We finished some presents we have been making over the past few weeks,

then headed of a short distance away (at a speedy 15km/hr!!) to deliver our goodies with this beautiful sky before us:

Tomorrow is Christmas Eve, our children are beside themselves with excitement, and their parents aren’t too far behind them in the giddy states! Have to spend the night wrapping, wrapping, wrapping, before we start into the serious Christmas day preparation tomorrow…

Oh, I cannot wait!!
