Lighting in my home in the evening is not good, so I edited this one a lot so you could see these lovely faces! I'm thankful for each one!
I love getting out tea cups for the ladies to use. I made my 'Holiday Tea' that is always so popular.
Here is the recipe - I double this for a large group.
5 tea bags of regular black tea
2 cups boiling water
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
6 ounce can of orange juice concentrate
6 ounce can of lemonade concentrate
Pour 2 cups boiling water over the 5 tea bags and let it steep for about 15 minutes. Then add the sugar and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the rest of the ingredients. This makes a concentrate. To serve one cup at a time, add 3 Tablespoons of concentrate to 1 cup of hot water. To serve a group use 1 cup of concentrate to 5 cups of hot water!
Saturday was a puttering day at home. In the evening we went to see the lights in Nottingham. Its our tradition. We'll probably go several times before the season is over.
Sunday was church, and we came home and ate pulled pork sandwiches. The young people went hiking, Tim napped, and I read. We all watched a movie in the evening.
It was very restful. This week will be busier - Sarah's choir will be performing tomorrow afternoon, and then all the choirs will perform in a big concert on Friday night!
I have Christmas shopping to do. We are giving Emma's family an experience this year, rather than toys or games or clothes. We might gift Nate's family with Disney +. Trying to think of things that don't add clutter to small spaces.
I'd love to hear what you do for your adult kids and grandkids! Let's chat in the comments!
