it's in the air

For me, the festivities of the Christmas season don't begin with the tacky light-up on Orchard Road or the seasonal sales, but the smell of baking - hints of spice, vanilla and chocolate - wafting through the house as it did the whole of Sunday.

I started with a double batch of Choc Oatmeal Cookies and then, with my mom, whipped up some gingerbread men and women, and some heart-, Christmas tree- and star-shaped butter cookies.

It was beginning to smell a lot like Christmas.
