Merry Christmas From Wachter World

We have baked

And baked some more

And wrapped

And wrapped again


Signed the cards

The Christmas citrus has arrived

The garlands are made

The table is set
And now we will be enjoying the fruits of our labor, being with family, eating good food, the egg nog

Carols at the piano

This is where you will find us

Wishing you the Merriest of Christmas from Wachter World


  1. Merry Christmas Wachter clan!!!

  2. Oh what a lovely post! It made me smile all the way through.

    I hope you and your family had a wonderful Christmas Day today!!! We did. =0)



  3. Great post! Made me want to visit your house at Christmastime! Hope your day was wonderful!!!

  4. Hi, Hope.

    You have a good memory. The dress Kaitlin is wearing is the same design We used the same fabric but hers was green and mine was blue. Brianna has a coordinating one as well, in the green. My girl friend liked them so well after she saw ours that she made one, too. You would love the style and are more than welcome to borrow the pattern if you would like.



  5. Hey Kat,

    With all of those wonderful things going on in Wachter World, what a beautiful Christmas it must have been. I admire the way your family does everything together.

    What's with all of the citrus? Who sends it? Do you make all kinds of juice with it? I know I'm missing some kind of post you wrote about this because I have way too many questions.

    Hugs and Blessings to you and your family,

    P.S. I said I was going to read one post tonight and then continue tomorrow. That plan isn't working. I'm still here reading and commenting. :0)

  6. Hi, Carol.

    The deal with the citrus is this...

    First, I took the picture so I could post about it but there are not enough days between Thanksgiving and Christmas for all the holiday posts I would have liked to do!

    Second, every year here in Maryland where it is hard to get good fresh citrus, our local farm bureau (my husband is from a family of farming) and the local FFA, truck in fresh citrus from Florida. You order it around Thanksgiving and then they deliver it a few days before Christmas. The citrus arriving is a definite sign that Christmas day is near.

    And it is always a huge treat in our house. We have been known to make an entire meal of the fresh citrus.

    And yes, we thoroughly enjoy making fresh juice every day. It is the only time of the year we can afford to do it as an orange can cost up to a dollar each at other times of the year.

    And... when I was a little girl my grandmother always had it sent to us from Florida for a Christmas gift. This year my in laws asked could they give us two boxes for Christmas. We ordered six and then as our gift they picked the whole lot up and delivered it to us and we paid them for the extra boxes.

    And that is the low down on the citrus!
