Lately, our days have been consumed with making, creating traditions, being extra tired (that would be me), and trying to enjoy and slow down (while getting key things made!). I'm so happy that this year we succeeded at either making most everything or buying it from someone else who made it. I can hardly wait to see the little people faces when they see the love that has been created for them. I am definitely sold on simple, handmade holidays. I've been reading a lot on simple family holidays, and I'm really convinced that it is the right thing for our family.
Here's a few glimpses at the fun we've been having. Tonight, it's gnome gingerbread cookie making time and then more crafting for me after the littles are sleeping. I hope everyone else is having a wonderful season. This one has been really fulfilling for me, and I think for the small people as well.
