I'm not a festive person, but being a mom has made me want to change that. I've found such joy in creating new traditions. Now that Ever is a little older, she can participate in all the festive things. So, one thing I'm going to love doing yearly, is making gingerbread houses. Maybe someday I'll be domestic enough to make the gingerbread myself from scratch.. but for now, Trader Joe's gingerbread kit is the perfect solution. Ever didn't quite understand that the house wasn't for eating until she watched me start building it. Then she had fun decorating, and at the end decided it was time to eat some haha.
