Friday Favorites Holiday edition



To get me into the Christmas spirit this is going to be a Christmas themed post. So here are my favorite parts of the Holiday. These will be old pictures from previous years since this stuff hasn’t happened yet this year. 



Decorating the tree and house. We try to do it as a family and put on a Christmas movie while doing it. My favorite movie to put on is ELF

One of my favorite traditions is decorating cookies for Santa on Christmas eve. It was more fun when Bella’s cousins lived close and could do it together but I still try to keep up with the tradition.

One of my daughter’s favorite Christmas activities is getting to decorate a gingerbread house. We usually get one of those kits from the store and she gets to decorate it like crazy.

My favorite dessert to make for the Holidays are Peanut Butter cup cookies. I’m not much of a baker but these are easy and I love Peanut Butter cups.
