~ The weather here is cloudy and grey, but the season has still been festive!
~ Each year I buy gingerbread house kits for my girls to decorate… it’s so fun to see the designs they come up with.
~ The girls also paint a ceramic ornament each year. They giggle at the ones they made when they were toddlers but we love them all.
~ Decorating sugar cookies is another one of our favorite holiday traditions. Tip- roll out the dough between two sheets of waxed paper and chill for 20 minutes… it will make cutting out the cookies so much easier!
It’s been over a month since my last post! I fell off the blogging train (everything is going great… just busy with work and life!) but have still been taking photos when I have a chance. Here are some of my favorites since my last post:
~ colorful crinkled paper scraps
~ capturing a peaceful moment during our end of summer family trip to the Oregon coast
~ harvest moon
~ my reading stack (I also just finished reading The Orphan Train which is a great read!)
~ my six-year-old twins’ bathroom counter
~ shadows on the sidewalk cast by sunlight shining through a decorative fence top
