Christmas Baking Planning

I have a confession to make: I barely baked last Christmas at all. I did gifts for Scott’s teacher, and that’s about it.
This year, my intention is to do my mammoth baking that I’ve enjoyed in the past. I want to make cookies and candies and breads and just have a blast doing it. But, to incorporate something like that into my schedule, it takes some planning and some time. With just three weeks until Christmas, and only two full weeks of school left, it’s time to get to planning!
I love giving my friends delicious homemade treats as a Christmas gift. I used to do it while I worked full time, and would spend and entire Saturday and most of a Sunday baking and cooking and cleaning and mixing. Over the years, I’ve learned how to space the work out so that it’s not so frantic and exhausting.

Jesus, Yeshua, God With Us

During the Christmas season, in many households and many communities, the focus is on Jesus — specifically on baby Jesus. While it’s exciting to think about God the Son becoming flesh and dwelling with us, we often focus so much on the infant child and forget the absolute magnitude of Jesus – Yeshua – God With Us. He is almighty and all powerful, and He IS the common thread sewn throughout the Bible.

Our church’s Christmas production focused on the power of the name of Jesus, and the following is pulled from that production. This is one of those that should be printed out and saved – a reminder of the glory of God and the Eternal presence of our Christ.

Planning for Christmas Baking

As I write this, it’s December 13th and we have just under two weeks to prepare for our Christmas baking gift giving. This is a tradition my mother taught me, and something I look forward to and plan for every single year.

However, I found myself writing a book during peak holiday planning time instead of planning, prepping, and blogging for/about Christmas baking. So, here it is, a week later than usual, but still on time to make amazing gifts in the coming weeks:

Thinking of Christmas in June

Homemade vanilla extract makes a beautiful gift come Christmastime. It’s something most people don’t think to make or know how to make, and the pure, real stuff is expensive. Put it in a neat little jar and you have an easy, loved, homemade gift.
