Welcome to the second post in the Whimsical Holiday Blog Series here at Createyou86. Fall, and Winter are our favorite seasons here. We know, we know.... winter doesn't start until later in the month, but we love it so much that we just couldn't wait to share our favorites with you so start scrolling!
1. Christmas Cookies
Who doesn't love cookies? Baking cookies is so much fun, and it is a great activity to do as a family. From rolling out the fresh dough to picking out which design to make the cookies, and cookie cutters, sprinkles, and other cookie decor.This is also a great activity for kids to help with learning colors (sprinkles), and shapes (cookie cutters).
2. Holiday Decorations
Holiday decorations evoke the spirit of holiday's past and present with dated decorations, and some even have photos on them. Putting out the decor helps the home feel more homey, and hands down a tradition to younger members of the family, and children.
3. Cold Weather Clothing
One of our favorite things about winter are winter clothes. From big chunky sweaters, to Ugg boots, to awesome knit hats, and gloves. I love being comfy, and winter is the perfect time for comfy warm clothes (warm fleece blankets, and sometimes snuggies!) I love wearing sweats, and sitting in front of the fire watching TV or reading.
Being in California for the past few years we have missed the snow. Growing up in Northeast Pennsylvania you see snow....you just do....weather it is a few inches or a few feet. You know about digging out the car, and defrosting the windshield. Snow is so beautiful, If you have never seen snow in person before.
5. Homemade Soup
On a bitter cold day of shoveling snow, or just bustling around, soup warms the soul. Soup is so easy to make, and one of our favorites is Chicken Corn Chowder. In fact, i made Chicken Corn Chowder last week for my family and they loved it! It only took an hour to completely cook. So, make yourself some soup to warm the soul!
