Christmas with Jane Austen @ The Readington Museums

On Sunday, December 2nd, I met up with Jere at the Reading Museums, Bouman-Stickney Farmstead for their holiday celebration themed this year as Christmas with Jane Austen.

There were crafts.  Here are the silhouettes that my mom and I made.  I can't wait to hang them on our tree.
There was dancing.  Jere stepped right up and joined in the fun!

They were cooking a traditional holiday meal on the open hearth.  It smelled wonderful!
They had a recipe for Apees (spiced butter cookies). 
I can't wait to try them out!

To end the day, (for me at least) we took a walk amongst the hedgerows.
