Our Daily Blessings! (:

Welcome to your Friday! I hope that you have had a good week filled with some Christmas cheer! Here’s a few blessings from this past week.

1) A NEW gingerbread recipe

Last weekend we explored a local historical park’s Christmas festivities. One of the old houses had people dressed in the historical clothing selling gingerbread cookies made from an 1845 recipe and roasted chestnuts (which weren’t as good as I expected). But if you went over to the summer kitchen there was another man dressed in historical clothing that was making the gingerbread cookies and you could take a copy of the recipe that was printed in their print shop. So, earlier this week we decided to make them. And let me tell you; they are some of the BEST gingerbread cookies that I have ever eaten! As a bonus, they smell amazing too!


We had some errands to run yesterday and as we were leaving snow was falling from the sky! It’s been very cold here–I think the weather finally figured out how close Christmas was. Nothing stuck yet but that didn’t diminish our excitement. We all wanted to break out in song!

3) Being DONE with Christmas shopping!

Woohoo! I have finally finished all of my Christmas shopping this year! We went to a few stores yesterday afternoon and I was able to finish all of my shopping. Which means that all that’s left is my favorite part. The wrapping! How are ya’ll coming along on your Christmas shopping? I’d love to hear in the comments below!

I hope that ya’ll have had a great week! I’d love to hear some of the blessings that you’re experiencing in your life in the comments below! Have a great weekend!

Until next time,
