12 days of memories

hello dear friends,
my dear friend NIA is hosting a wonderful 12 day of christmas party time :)
 Caixinha de Pirlimpimpim: 12 days of Christmas °•● party time!!!

here is my first post about stocking and christmas tree..and my childhood memory and traditions..
 art of the wonder of Christmas comes with the sights, sounds, and smells of the season. They carry a certain nostalgia, allowing us to relive the magical moments of our favorite Christmas memories: waking up to a blanket ,baking homemade cookies with Grandma ... driving through neighborhoods in search of the brightest Christmas lights ... midnight Mass ... singing Christmas carols at the nursing home ..

I have tons of wonderful childhood memories of family gatherings, baking and decorating cookies, etc. But, I suppose my favorite Christmas memory is of the first Christmas cake i baked with ouma..we wanted to bake two cakes...
first one in the oven..we both were talking..knitting..and then we gone into the garden..for a walk..because there was a still time left to take out the cake..
ouma slept in the garden on the chair...and me hanging around the trees..
completely forgot about the cake..
and at the end our neighbour knocked at the door that the awful smell is coming and smoke coming out of the kitchen window...
oh dear..i can never forget the sight of that CAKE
i have so many beautiful memory..i can never forget that day i spend the christmas day with my teacher in her house..she was alone on that christmas day..
..talking..laughing..We enjoyed a peaceful morning listening to music, sipping coffee, opening gifts, and then spent that afternoon happily. 
 blessings and love always
