Last night in preparation for the solstice, we spent a few minutes driving around to see the lights in the neighborhoods near our house. We found a few that were quite decked out! We tried to see the lunar eclipse last night, alas, a completely cloudy sky completely blocked the view.
This morning, we opened a package with some winter craft exchange items. What a fun surprise! Lovely treasures for our nature table.
I really love the northern lights look of the playsilk behind the polar bear and his ice-capped hill!
We also spent some time making candles to light our darkest, longest night.
And some cookies, of course!
Orange Cardamom Cookies with orange-sugar on top...delicious!
What a lovely way to celebrate the solstice and this short, cloudy, chilly day!
