We are heading to St. Louis tomorrow where 10 out of 11 of my brothers and sisters (we will miss you Jana!) + husbands + a few grandkids will be gathering for Christmas! Excitement would be an understatement. We literally have an “itinerary of fun” that we have mapped out. Besides, we only get to all be together once in a blue moon :) Baking Christmas cookies is on the list. Followed by a SERIOUS decorating contest. Do you all get to have some baking time with loved ones this week?
Something about food can really bring people together;)
