My Christmas Present
Our son, who was married last year, has just finished his first semester in Wood Tech at WITC. He had to choose a project, design, and execute it. After he got his grade on the hutch, he moved it to their apartment.
I am not easily impressed by new furniture, because so much of it is poorly made with cheap materials. This hutch is an exception. Made of oak and beautifully crafted (if I do say so myself), it is a piece of furniture that Joe and Courtney's children will consider a prized family heirloom. And the drawers are even dove-tailed!! Love that!
We went to see it yesterday, and I had to keep running my hands over the smooth finish. Anyway, to spare you any more bragging by a very impressed mom, I'll move on to something else...
We're taking our daughter and SIL halfway to Green Bay today, where we're meeting Gus's family so that they can spend the next days with them. We had fun putting up the tree, baking Christmas cookies, and just spending time with them.
Dairy-free, Gluten-free, Corn-free, Soy-free
Note about the cookies: I typically bake with Real Wisconsin butter, so they did not taste the same. BUT, when they were baking, our kitchen smelled just like our local bakery - which means that they must use palm oil shortening instead of butter. Personally, I don't mind the gluten-free variety, but if I were making them for me, they would contain butter. There is no substitute. But they did provide a good alternative for our daughter and our son-in-law who have those particular food allergies.
I'm hoping to get some knitting done on the little road trip today. It should keep my mind off the snow storm that is coming to Wisconsin today.
I hope you all have a busy, enjoyable, and productive day!
