One of the Christmas traditions around our house was baking Christmas goodies. The girls would pick a Saturday and gather at our house to bake all sorts of treats. This year schedules finally got in the way and a day in the kitchen was not possible. It was a little sad, but our waistlines are probably the better for it. The top photo was taken in a duplex apartment that we rented while the house in photo two was being built. We downsized and moved again in 2015 and I'm pretty sure the remainder of our Christmas celebrations will take place at this location.
