We had beans and greens with gnocchi for lunch and subs from Marks.

Maria couldn’t join us. She has a new job at Wegman’s. Hopefully,  she’ll come another day before Christmas and make some cookies.

Tree Ornaments

Before all the baking with anyone, I made Sugar Cookie Cut-outs. I cut out the center of each cookie and filled it with crushed hard candies. When baked, they kind of looked like stained glass. I had poked a hole in them and Lisa put ribbon thru each so they could hang on the tree. Oh yeah, I sprinkled the with colored sugars before baking. After cooling, I coated them with ‘Modge Podge’ to make them last longer.

Everyone took a turn at dishes—�—�Clara seemed to do the most.

Gina vacuumed the floors at the end.
