Christmas Eve

A few pictures for you all on this vigil day of the great feast of the Incarnation.

Watching the first snow fall a few days ago.

Rolling out the dough for ravioli on Christmas Eve.

It can be hard work at times.

Ready to fill with ricotta and other good things.

Cutting out the squares (or stars, as the case may be).

The gravy for tomorrow's lasagne.

Homemade linguine this year for the shrimp scampi.

Maria always puts the star on top of the tree.

What great traditions! I look forward to watching John hoist Maria up in 15 years to put the star on the tree then!
