Choc Bikky Christmas Tree

We had lots of fun baking, decorating and sharing our chocolate biscuit stars. Don't you love the way they form this tree when elegantly stacked by six year old hands guiding her toddler girlfriends and followers. We were due to meet friends in the park so took along the previously decorated biscuits in order to make a Christmas Tree we could share with everyone for morning tea. 'Twas our little gift to bid farewell to a group of little friends as we move from this city next month.

It was so very beautiful to watch my big, almost 7 year old, Ess caring for the little 2 year old girls she has come to know as part of our Kindermusik group we attend for little Eee. She loves them all and will sadly miss them as I know they'll miss her. She watches them, follows them, ensures they are doing well as they climb, play, explore and discover new places without their Mummies yet alongside their bigger girl friend. She certainly has the heart of a mother-carer, my girl. It will be interesting to watch her inclinations as she grows.

Your tree is marvellous.

You are right to be proud of your big girl...

What a nice tree and a great idea. I decorated Christmas cookies with my nieces last weekend. What a mess but a nice tradition to start.

I didn't know you were moving. You'll have to tell us all about it.

And about the cherry picking post. So nice to see such places as it is cold and snowy here.

Hi there,

Just wanted to pop in and say Merry Christmas! Thanks for suggesting I start a blog, even when I was on dial-up. I have really enjoyed "meeting" so many new people.

Merry Christmas to you too Cindy!

So glad you enjoy blogging and friend making in this way. I do so also and am sorry I don't get to the computer as often these days to join in with this little or rather, quite large, community.

Happy Day!

I don't know about you, but uprooting a household and moving to a totally new area is quite stressful. That's probably why I'm still in the same house after 32 years! But I wish you the best. Your family is growing, so I imagine you are going to need more room!

The choco-biscuit cake is darling! You always seem to have a repertoire of creative and delightful ideas.
