Somethings that are traditions at our house

In the past I have made the Moravian Cookies each Christmas. Youngest son loves them and declares it would not be Christmas without them. This year I am adding Love Feast Buns to our traditions. Church is later in morning this time, since Christmas lands on Sunday. I love the traditional Christmas Eve Services, all the Christmas Music. My younger two children ds 15 and dd 21 love to decorate. Our house is small, so I need to come up with new decorating ideas so the place doesn't look cluttered.

Come, Lord Jesus,
Our Guest to be,
And bless these gifts,
Bestowed by Thee.
Bless our dear ones everywhere,
Keep them in Thy loving care.

Polar Bear Kisses (Candy)

White Chocolate bark
Peppermint candy crushed

I melt white chocolate in micro-wave (carefully as not to burn it) Pour into buttered pan, top with crushed peppermint candy.

I only do these on Christmas as they are so full of sugar.
