Christmas is just days away and while I am certainly feeling my fair share of pressure to finish my to do list I am also really trying to do my best to enjoy all of the fun little moments happening all around me. With our oldest child only being two, grand holiday occasions are land mines of meltdowns and overstimulation. However, once I just embraced that that was our current season I have done by best to celebrate the holidays in manageable and fun smaller doses. We have taken pictures, looked at Christmas lights, baked some cookies and listened to hours and hours of Christmas music.
One new tradition that we started this year was celebrating St. Nicholas Day. Each child got some small treats and book in their stocking and we read a fun little age-appropriate story about the real St. Nicholas. I wanted to make something yummy and festive to eat too, and these yummy gingerbread waffles were born.
So, if you are on the hunt for a easy and yummy Christmas breakfast idea, I would definitely give these a try.
I hope that each of you has a wonderful week next week and a fantastic end to 2018!
