-Each day after Thanksgiving my mom gives us a new Christmas CD
- Christmas Eve church
-getting a new ornament in my stocking
But for this post I wanted to focus on relatively new traditions that John and I have adopted (or are planning to). Since I love Christmas so much, it was/is important to me that we develop traditions.
This is a three part Christmas tradition series:
1. Gingerbread Houses
2. Cookies and cocktails
3. DC Christmas outing
For as long as I can remember my mom had/let/helped my sister and I make gingerbread houses. Mostly we cheated and used graham crackers. I haven't done one in 8ish years. This year I wanted to not only make gingerbread houses, but invite friends over to join us. Our friends, Brynn and Adam, were totally up for the event.
We had a great time!!!
she was very excited and took her construction seriously
No one else at the table had made a gingerbread house before. In fact, when I sent John to the store with the direction "get fun candy for the gingerbread houses" he returned with ghirardelli and lindt chocolates.
We spent hours adding to our creations.
