Gingerbread Cookies

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a new favorite recipe for homemade gingerbread cookies. I LOVE gingerbread, and the spicier, the better. This recipe is wonderful. The cookies are perfectly spiced, a little bit chewy, and crispy around the edges. They make the perfect canvas for decorating!


Lately...Christmas Decorating Edition

Christmas is my favorite season, and yes, I think of it as a season, not just a single holiday. I love the decorations, the lights, the movies, the sense of community, the food. 

I would be lying if I said I loved the shopping though. I don't do much shopping this time of the year. We like to focus more on family time and experiences than gifts. (Before you start thinking we're Grinchy, we do buy gifts for Harper!!! I LOVE buying stuff for her, but I don't love buying gifts for everyone under the sun. I'd rather make something, or bake something for people. And my mom usually helps with the gift wrapping-it's not my thing!)

Since December 1st rolled around, yucky winter illness has swept through our little family and all of us have been sick. We've kept our spirits up though and have been busy decorating and enjoying all the moments. 
Today I thought I'd share a little bit of the things that I love, that make our home feel cheery and festive!

 These snowmen were from the dollar store I worked at during high school. They've been on almost every desk that I've worked at since then, and now they're in my dining room. Harper loves playing with them, and she moves them around the house. They're a Mommy, Daddy, and Baby snowman according to her. :-)
