It is now history, but memorializing bits and pieces of the memories of this now Christmas past.
As I do annually, I baked a cheesecake for Jason's birthday to take to the fire station. It is tradition that the birthday person must provide cake, ice cream or some other dessert for the crew that day. His favorite is cheesecake which I make each year for him, along with blueberry sauce. So happy it turned out good.
