Decorating Gingerbread Men on Christmas Eve.
This Christmas season seemed full to bursting with sewing for the shop, cleaning, cooking/baking, and the general busyness of homeschooling. I really wanted to make an effort to spend some quality time with the kids; even though I work from home and homeschool, finding time for quality time can still be ridiculously tricky this time of year. Thankfully we managed to squeeze in some gingerbread-men-decorating time on Christmas Eve. I wasn't sure I could make it happen, but I'm so glad I did! I didn't want to buy one of those terrible tasting houses, so I opted for homemade gingerbread and icing (thanks, Jill, for the easy recipe!), and purchased some candy from the bulk section of our local Wegman's.
It really was a sweet time of slowing down and having fun together (plus it was tasty!). I do believe we'll be making this a Christmas-time tradition. I hope you all had some extra-special moments during your Christmas celebrations!
