This week I've been thinking about how to get into the Christmas spirit! With a new baby, it's fun to think about new Christmas traditions... but I feel that most of that pondering can wait until next year when she is a year old and more aware of the holiday. In the meantime I've been thinking about my own childhood- and that includes sweets and movie watching. We rented Scrooged (seen above) and I have Santa Claus on my netflix queue. Two movies that were not always in the yearly mix, but still good ones to revisit!
NEW this year: A Pandora Radio mix of Handle's Messiah and Manneheim Steamroller- which provides a fun classical alternative to all the pop christmas songs that bombard us on the radio and at stores.
This week I'll also whip up some 6 layer bars. I emailed my mom for the recipe and here's what she wrote:
What are your festive plans for the week!?
