D-Day

IMG_2130

My family has quite a few holiday traditions. Thanksgiving is the first day we listen to Christmas music (officially), and after the Thanksgiving meal we watch White Christmas. The day after Thanksgiving is Doughnut Day where – shockingly – we make doughnuts. Chocolate-covered, powdered-sugar-covered, maple-glazed; and this year it was no small feat, considering we’re all grain-free. We slept in and when we woke up there was a fire going in the fireplace, with time for coffee and relaxation before the food-making began. Once it started, it was a glorious mess, as always – chocolate-covered fingers, powdered sugar flying everywhere, doughnuts and doughnut holes disappearing as quickly as they were laid out to cool (and frequently before).

Do you have any traditional family holidays, or holiday traditions?

And did you see the new Star Wars trailer yet!??

    You all are so beautiful!!!!!!! I can’t even. I have to say it again: Silas’ is rocking that haircut and if I was a boy, that’s how I’d do my hair. Actually, if I wasn’t a vain girl who loved her hair long and wasn’t afraid to go for it, I’d get my hair cut like that now.

    You and Marriah are soooooooooo pretty. I want to give you both hugs. (I promise I’m not a creeper.) You both look like your mom. ^_^
