I’m taking time off to enjoy the holiday season with my family, get caught up on some shopping and maybe one of these days I will mail out my Christmas cards. Right now, I’m still trying to find some presents I hid a while ago and totally forgot about until now! ha.
Decorating a gingerbread house is one of our favorite family traditions. My friend Belinda makes us one each year with her secret gingerbread recipe and it’s so yummy!!
If you don’t bake, or have a friend like Belinda, run out and get one of those ready made kits today! We had an absolute blast decorating our house. Plus it took the entire afternoon and they never got bored or whined once. I know… it was a Christmas miracle. ha!
Belinda also gave me some dough. We’ll be decorating cookies today, drinking hot cocoa (even though it’s 75 degrees here in Dallas) and watching Christmas movies tonight.
I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday as well! Postings will be irregular here until the New Year as I’ll be digging through closets and looking under beds for hidden gifts.
