Since we just arrived back to SA, we are just now decorating for the holidays. The kids love the fun of putting up the Christmas tree, hanging the ornaments (usually clustered in the same spot), and making a gingerbread house. It’s all a bit different this year but still just as fun.
This is the first year we’ve had a fake tree! The beautiful pine scent has been replaced by plastic fumes. The kids didn’t seem to mind though and were eager to make it special. Joshua’s favorite is always putting the ornament up top. This year’s pick – a star!
Every year we make a gingerbread house. I contemplated buying one and bringing it back with me. But then I thought, “No, I will be ambitious and make my own!” I found a recipe here. It was my first time and after decorating on it for a while, it all came tumbling down. I think next year I’ll opt to just buy one. It’s not like we ever eat it anyway.
