We decided to build a gingerbread house. And I’m so glad we did. I think it turned out beautifully – a true custom home 😉
One of the great things about celebrating our first Christmas together has been the melding of old and new traditions. I have pinned so many ideas on Pinterest and wanted to try a few. I’ve tried to make the ideas reflect “us” and also use things I had around the house.
One of the ideas I tried was a homemade Advent calendar. I adapted it a little so I could use resources I had on hand. It turned out very close to what I had envisioned.
Inside each folded slip of paper I wrote a different way to celebrate Christmas (read Luke 2, slow dance to Christmas music, make homemade marshmallows, etc). We’re like little kids again, excited to open one each day 🙂
And I have been baking my heart out. I love it.
I’m so excited that next week is Christmas!
Which reminds me… I have a few more gifts to wrap and a few more recipes to make 😉
