Christmas Traditions

Jeff and I have developed several Christmas Traditions in the 8 (!) years we have been married.

A few years ago, when we were within driving distance to our families, and winter was bearing down on us, and the house was freezing and cold, we used to bake tons and tons of Christmas cookies.  Peanut Butter Blossoms, Spritz, and Sour Cream Cutouts were our specialty.

This year we have been so busy we have had to pick and choose what Christmas activities we completed - so my two favorites (which are both healthier) made the list!

1.  Christmas letter and card writing - but to a pared down list AND

2.  Neighboorhood light looking

Jeff completely knocked the light viewing out of the park this year - we saw million dollar homes with both home-made and professional decorated lights.  This one was by far my favorite - and most impressive!

Add to that we stopped by TCBY for a make-your-own soft serve fro-yo treat, and it was a completely successful Christmas preparation!

It makes me *almost* forget about Sour Cream Santas.
