I love celebrating the different holidays by making something to give to someone. It is especially fun if it is a craft that I can share with my daughter. We were busy making poppies this morning. My parent's always have a Rememberance Day celebration at their house every year. There is usually 12 to 14 of us gathered for a Danish Smorg.....my Dad's heritage. We sit around the table among family and friends and have a feast of danish dishes prepared by my Mom. The feast starts out with pickel herring and rye bread, then we move on to carrots & peas in a cream sauce and Danish sausage - yummm - finally we usually have open faced sandwiches (salami, roast beef & shrimp) topped with a spagetthi type salad and fried onions. Ohh I am making myself hungry thinking about this. My daughter, my aunt and I made one poppy for everyone that will be at the Rememberance Day Celebration plus a couple of people that won't be.
Here are some pictures of our creative morning.......
