  1. I like to look for a block of time, where things are just about done and I’m just waiting for something else to finish baking. I’ll grab my jacket and head out for a ‘head clearing’ walk, just to gather my thoughts, release any built up stress and thank God once again for what I have.

  2. Our family always takes a long walk after the meal. It’s funny to see a herd of 15 people out for a stroll. 🙂

  3. The guys watch football and the girls make gingerbread houses— we actually make them out of graham crackers which we hot glue together then we decorate with frosting and candy. We have done this for years and each year the houses get more and more creative!!! It is something that my daughters and I look forward to each year!!
