since sweets & treats seem to be overabundant during the month of december (see previous post!), we like to give out a "simmering scent" to our neighbors and this year was our most productive assembly year yet! it's so nice having two very willing helpers around!
while danny & i sliced citrus, the kids filled up each of the bags with two cinnamon sticks, a tablespoon of clove buds, and two bay leaves. they took their jobs very seriously and even started a contest to see who could find the tiniest "baby" bay leaf.
i just love this time of year! and if you've never made a simmering scent during the holidays--do it! your house will smell heavenly!!
