Sugar on snow

Sugaring off is a traditional spring event here in Quebec. Since we just do it as a family, we go really small scale and boil a couple cans of maple syrup on our stovetop. It is a fun (and sticky!) time. David and Erica and their two girls joined us, increasing the enjoyment. Too little to get involved with the sticky stuff, Keziah just played peek-a-boo in her stroller.


Elizabeth, however, got to join in and loved it!




This is sticky!


Some milk after so much sweet

Everyone enjoyed their day too!

Daddy’s little girl – all cleaned up!

As we savoured the maple sugar, I thought of the verse in Psalm 119:103: “How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!” Yes, the Word is sweeter even than maple syrup!
