Snow background -- that's me wishing for snow. Preferably before Christmas. A white December makes it look so much more Christmasy. Even Christmas songs sound lovelier when there's snow on the ground. I'm dreaming of a white Christmas... and Lebkuchen
Some years ago we created gingerbread houses with our students. What a sticky mess! There was icing everywhere and our gingerbread house were crooked, the candies wouldn't stick and kept sliding down the roof (go figure, because our fingers were certainly sticky enough.) but the children were happy. It didn't seem to matter to them that the teachers were more than a little frazzled. But then, we didn't lick half as much icing or pop every other candy into our mouth. Aahh, sweet gingerbread memories!

Which reminds me, Crystal Springs Hutterite Colony Choir will be singing there on the 26th this year, along with many other choirs and bands. It's always a very festive event, filled with the tastes, sights, sounds and scents of the season.
I was able to pick up my order yesterday (below). Now I can't wait to try these unique treats. Maybe I'll even convince myself to tuck one under the Christmas tree for someone else to enjoy.
My sincere thanks to the Manitoba Teachers of German organizing committee and
