Christmas Cake

Last night I prepared the fruit to get my first Christmas Cake made today. 
 I just love making my own Christmas cakes.

All that delicious dried fruit and nuts.

This morning the ingredients were mixed and the cake assembled.

This morning as I mixed using my beautiful old spoon I thought again about my dear Nana and Grandma.  I have a spoon from each of their kitchens and I love and use them daily.

I thought about all the cakes that had been mixed by their hands with these very same spoons and the love that had gone into our family by doing so.

I thought about them and how much I miss them and being in their kitchens cooking. 

So with my Christmas preparations finally started, I hope my family will one day remember the love that goes into the preparation of Christmas and maybe one day treasure the very special memories that I hope I have created for them.

A memory of two very special ladies Leisa. I came across a little movie of Grandma in her last few months the other night. She was waving to us. So special.
