We had a really nice Winter Solstice. My brother and nephew are visiting from Virginia, and my Mom, Dad and sister came down for the day as well. We had a mellow time hanging out and visiting, while I made chili and corn bread for dinner. I also made our traditional Midwinter Gingerbread for dessert which was a big hit. YUM.
The Peeps and I did our usual thing as well… brought it bunches of greens and holly to decorate and built a solstice cave. This year because of the two feet of snow that got dumped on us, we built it out of snow instead of a cairn of rocks. It looked sooooo pretty glistening in the snow all night! The picture I took of it is from our video camera so I’ll add that later. In the meantime, here’s a picture of what’s left of the Midwinter Gingerbread… I should have snapped a shot BEFORE everyone got to it. It looked so purty! LOL
