We made purse cookies to celebrate St. Nicholas' generosity (if we had lots of time and energy, I would have liked to try some of these recipes, maybe next year!) and
Now we're getting ready to head out the door for the Southwest Children's Chorus performance at the Dallas county Tree of Angels ceremony tonight. Benjamin has a small solo!
