~ 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!

I hope you have a wonderful holiday season! :)
