Merry Christmas!

 Merry Christmas!


 Christmas stocking goodies.:

They plunged their hands into the stockings again. And they pulled out two long, long, sticks of candy. It was peppermint candy, striped red and white. They looked and looked at that beautiful candy, and Laura licked her stick, just one lick. But Mary was not so greedy. She didn’t even take one lick of her stick.

Those stockings weren’t empty yet. Mary and Laura pulled out two small packages. They unwrapped them, and each found a little heart-shaped cake. Over their delicate brown tops was sprinkled white sugar. The sparkling grains lay like tiny drifts of snow.


May you all find your stockings full of delicious and lovely gifts today!

  1. Merry Christmas! I love the Little House Christmases! I think The Long Winter is my favorite. Talk about making the best of things under the worst of circumstances.

    2. I bought a copy of The Little House Cookbook, after seeing on my sister's shelves (I had to resist the urge to "borrow" it). It has the recipe for the little heart-shaped cakes, if you'd like me to send it :)

    3. If it is the old, yellow covered Little House cookbook, I'm pretty sure I have a copy somewhere on my own shelves. I will check it! Thanks for the info, I never thought to look for this recipe.
