A Child’s Colonial Holiday

IMG_0212bilde bilde-9 bilde-3 bilde-1 bilde-2 bilde-16On a December afternoon, the Grave House came alive with a host of your children, parents, and even grandparents celebrating an 18th century holiday.

But best of all, the children decorated gingerbread cookies and cooked them in the hearth beehive oven. They also made old fashioned tree ornaments to take home and sipped hot cocoa and enjoyed cookies.

Afterward the Deacon read holiday stories in front of a  roaring fire.  Later everyone joined together to sing  the tunes of the season, accompanied by guitar music.
