All Things Christmas

Well today is the first day of Winter and the week of Christmas. Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday so I love this time of year and everything that goes along with it. It's been a little bit more challenging though as I'm doing it all as a single parent so there is more work to be done by one person, but so far it's shaping up to be the best Christmas yet. We got our first dusting of snow last week but it was quickly followed by rain and the few centimetres we got was all washed away. It was nice to have even a little bit though.

One of the activities on our Advent Calendar was for Vaeh to make Christmas cards for her friends in our complex. She was so excited to get going and did a wonderful job. She has yet to stick candy canes to the envelopes and then hand them out. I'm sure we will do that tomorrow.

This year we have tried to incorporate as many handmade gifts into our giving and next year we are aiming for a completely handmade Christmas with all of the gifts we give will be handmade in some form or another. I thought it would be a great project for Vaeh to learn how to make beeswax candles and to give them as a gift to her Grandparents and to her Aunt.

Here she is rolling the candles for her Aunt.

I've spent the last few days working on some knitting projects and being cozied up on the couch near the fireplace. Of course my favorite special Christmas drink was on hand.

Tonight we are heading out to have pictures taken with Santa and then we'll return home to do some crafting. I'm going to be working on a darling felt and embroidery project that I found. I'll share the project in my next post. Have a cozy night!
