14. That't the number of days until Thanksgiving.
And, if there are only 4 + 10 more days until Thanksgiving, then that means that there is roughly 41 days and 11 hours left until Christmas!
I LOVE this season. Truly truly love it. And it has nothing to do with the gifts or even the food. I love this season because it is treasured and revered as family time. It's time that is set apart to do and be together. Like most families, our home has special traditions that we like to do together. Movie nights, craft nights, decking the halls, reading the stories of Jesus' birth. These times are so special!
Growing up, one of my favorite traditions was when we would make and decorate Christmas cookies. Rolling out the dough, cutting, baking, icing and sprinkling. OH WHAT FUN! A colorful mess of delicious fun. And so, as I was thinking about whether to offer mini sessions at all this season, I thought back to what is special to me. What is special and real and spontaneous and just good fun? It was that train of thought that led to this year's Christmas Mini Session theme of decorating cookies!
