Like I mentioned before, we were away over the weekend so I technically wasn't crafting. But we did do something Christmas related!
In my family it is a tradition to decorate gingerbread cookies together. We did it when we were kids and the tradition picked up again once we were adults and started to have our own kids. So, every year around Christmastime, we gather at my parent's house to sit at the table and decorate a giant batch of the most amazing gingerbread cookies ever.
In years past, my strategy has always been to think of quality over quantity. This meant I was usually going home with small batches of pretty cookies.
|Ok, so this one isn't pretty but I ended up with a headless angel...what else was I to do?|
Being able to introduce these types of traditions to my kids is one of my favourite things about the holidays. I still have happy memories of doing these types of things with my own grandparents and I am happy that my children are being given the same opportunity. Plus, I never pass up free cookies!
