Holiday Traditions in the G House: Adoption Link-Up

Welcome to the last link-up post of 2015!


Here are some of our family's favorite holidays traditions, in no particular order:

1:  Making reindeer cookies.  They are so easy!  Take your favorite basic cookie recipe, and once the cookies are baked and begin to cool, add two chocolate pretzels as antlers, two eyes and a red nose with colored candy (such as M and Ms).  So easy for little ones to make.  (We use a peanut butter oatmeal cookie recipe).

2:  Adding to our Black Santa/nativity/angel decor collection.  (We also like to visit Black Santa at the mall.)  

3:  Making gingerbread houses at our local library.

4: Sending Christmas cards to our nearest and dearest.  

5:  Playing with our special stash of Christmas toys, including the Little People nativity set.

Of course, let's not leave out Christmas Eve church, visiting family and friends, opening gifts, and eating!  

What are some of your holiday traditions?

No Bohns About It


  1. I've seen various friends post about Black Santas. Is there a list of them online somewhere?

  2. I always have so much fun seeing other people's holiday traditions. It was especially fun seeing all your ornaments! That Mr and Mrs Claus one is my favorite. Your reindeer cookies are super cute! We are baking cookies this weekend and I think I might try that!

  3. We also love going to look for Christmas lights! My son is convinced that anyone who has up Christmas lights will be having a Merry Christmas!
