christmas this and that

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas. I thought I would pop in before the weekend and say hi. I must admit that traveling away from home for so long during the holidays has been hard for me. I love this time of year. The decorating, the baking, the crafting, the lit up tree at night. I love the celebrating in my home, and it's been hard for me to not have it this year. BUT, this week has been full of crafting and family fun so it's been a little sweet spot in the midst of my depressed self. :)

gingerbread house

There's been salt dough ornaments, Christmas tree sugar cones, nativity activities. And of course, our annual gingerbread house. The gingerbread house has become a tradition that my kids look forward to every year, and I love it. As you might have noticed, that is the only craft Joshua participated in!

How was Christmas week at your house?


Linking up with Jennifer @ Studio JRU for Sneak Peek Friday.
