Happy Solstice!!

The Winter Solstice is upon us, and we are celebrating!

While we still celebrate the traditional Christmas holiday with the rest of our friends and family, we also celebrate the Solstices in our house. I mentioned before we have a solstice tree to welcome back the sun. We also have a table top Charlie-Brown-Style tree on which hang my ornament set of Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and a couple of other small ornaments added by my two boys.

Suns, Moons and Stars – homemade ornaments for our big tree

I made my famous chocolate zucchini cake today, with chocolate icing in between the layers and white icing on top for a special Solstice design. I have a couple of small gifts for my boys under our Rudolph/CharlieBrown tree to give them a little something* before they fly to their dad’s house in Texas tomorrow. Today is also the last day of school for them, so they will be amped when they get home!

We here at the Morgan house sincerely wish all of you a VERY Happy Solstice and hope you all have a fantastic and abundantly happy holiday season! Here’s to sun, happiness and some hedonistic values!

*By the way, Evan and I got a little something, too! We will tell you all about it soon, so stay tuned!
