Advent is the time for preparation...
A time to pause and remember
the true meaning of Christmas.

Weathered Cattle Chute for Friday Fences...

I get very excited when I find something like this...
looking a little tired,
 but still a very usable cattle chute.
Maybe a bunkhouse or just an overnight cabin...
a place for ranch hands to stay,
while waiting for the cattle truck to arrive.
Would you not agree...
a wonderful place to take photographs.

Celebrating the Second Week of Advent for InSPIREd Sunday

The Candle of Love, the second candle in our Advent Wreath, is lite today.
German Lutherans, in the 16th century, originated the concept of the Advent Wreath.
However, it was three centuries later, when the modern wreath took shape.

Main Street, Small Town Texas for Friday Fences

Tonight is the big Christmas Celebration for this small Texas town.
By the time the local shops close for the day,
 the main street will be lined with Arts and Craft vendors,
 delicacies to try and plenty of wassail to drink.
Just beyond the fence, lies a very busy train track,
 that runs the entire length of main street.
I'll be back tonight...
 to join in the celebration!

A New Family Tradition with Granddaughter...

The past week has been a whirlwind of family,
passing through the doors
of The Bungalow.
It's results have put the 2015 Thanksgiving Celebration at the top of the list,
 of my all-time favorites.
There is such joy in having all of your adult children home, at the same time.
My youngest granddaughter is adopted from Guatemala, as is her brother.
She can be described as a "firecracker" bubbly and full of energy....
and, eager to be in the kitchen.
It was decided that she and I would bake cookies together.
 Here are the results of what I hope will be a new tradition, in our family.
Wanting to do something a little different, I decided we would give a cookie press a try.
I purchased mine through Amazon for only $10.00.
Have you ever used one?
The tool reminds me of a caulking gun...
something I'm very familiar with, using it with my old house renovations.
 The cookie recipe for Spritz Cookies, is a very simple recipe.
Click HERE for the recipe and decorating ideas.
It is much like making a pie crust.
The cookie press, made by Wilton, came with 14 different templates.
What I like about the grip handle press is...
 I could steady the press,
while my granddaughter's tiny hands gripped the handle,
 to punch out the cookies.
In less than 8 minutes of baking,
we had the first batch of seven dozen cookies.
These are perfect cookies, for traveling as Christmas gifts.
Rich in butter...
they literally melt in your mouth.
I must admit...
the cookie press excited me as much as
my granddaughter baking in
The Bungalow Kitchen.
