Yule 2012

I woke up before the sun rose so I could greet the newborn Sun king with praise in song. Then I went inside and made a few batches of scones for my family to wake up to. The minions stockings were put at the ends of their beds and I could hear their happy giggles and exclamations of surprise as I finished preparing breakfast. We converged in the living room and ate warm bacon cheddar, blueberry and chai scones and drank spicy Mayan hot chocolate as we sat in a big circle and started to open gifts.  I will feature some of the highlights and all of the witchy gifts for sure :) The minions received alot of presents this year and Hubby and I were very spoiled as our oldest three are all working and very generous.

The minions were also gifted with a Root beer making kit and passes to the West Edmonton Mall water park. Hubby and I also received a micro brewery. I am looking forward to experimenting with herbal beers this spring and summer :) We spent the day enjoying each others company. In the evening we gathered around the feast table in total darkness and gave thanks for the return of the light, a single spark ignited a flame and the light was celebrated into the night with much feasting and libation :)
