Christmas Starts NOW with Gingerbread Waffles!

  It's December 1st today and the Thanksgiving holiday weekend is officially over, so it is time to move onto all things Christmas! We bought our tree on Friday, and decorated it last night, so the holiday festivities have definitely started in our home. 

There are only 25 days to fit in all our favorite Christmas music, movies, events, shopping, and traditions, and I want to make this season memorable for my boys. Tonight we will start our Advent Calendar with reading the beginning of the story of the first Christmas from the Bible, play Christmas music during dinner, and snuggle up to watch a Christmas movie together before bed. But this morning started early with one of our favorites holiday inspired breakfast traditions... Gingerbread Waffles!
