I am planning to do gingerbread next week once my DD gets back (she is gone for a whole week visiting her grandparents!). This week I really want to do some nuts and bolts so I have something to munch on! But DS2 is being super irritable this week. I have barely been able to do anything so far, and I have to get the house cleaned this week before the IL's come to drop DD off and stay for 2 days.
All these cookies are making me drool
Those cookies look wonderful! Every year my mom and I get together and we bake all weekend. We bake cookies, but we also make Reese Balls, Cheese Wafers (those are my favorite), date nut balls, fudge, etc etc. It's come to mean a lot to me that we do that every year. THIS year, I went to go visit her and bake (she lives three hours away) and I got a horrible stomach bug and was sick all weekend. I don't think she'll be able to make it here - I might be able to go back this weekend. But it's really making me sad that we might not be able to bake this year.
I still remember decorating the tree when I was little with ham biscuits and the record player playing Christmas music. So, I'm all for any kinds of Christmas traditions being started up.
Visiting Nana here-
Growing up, my family tradition was going for a sleigh ride with my Dad, brother and sister to see the lights. Years later I figured out that this was the time when my Mom wrapped presents!
