DRINK: I'm a classic hot chocolate kind of girl. My mama makes the best homemade hot chocolate. It is rich and creamy and gets better with each sip. No lie! It is SO good.
ALBUM: Music is my jam. I love the classic Bing Crosby Christmas album, A Johnnyswim Christmas, and I really love the new Rend Collective Campfire Christmas!
BAKING: Peanut butter balls. They are my favorite. Delicious, homemade chocolate and peanut butter goodness. They are so easy to make and a classic Christmas staple. Yum town.
TRADITION: My family loves traditions, and we have so many of them! For the past eight years, we have headed up to Nashville for Andrew Peterson's Behold the Lamb of God concert at The Ryman. It's my favorite tradition and one of the most beautiful days of my year. I missed it this year since I'm at Disneyworld, but there is always next year! :)
ORNAMENT: Hmmm. I have this one ornament that is a snowman s'more wrapped up in a sleeping bag. He's pretty cute. Another favorite is a beautiful star my parents brought home from their disaster response trip to the Philippines last year. I love the way the light shines through it.
MEMORY: Living in Tennessee, we don't typically have snow on Christmas. But a few years ago on Christmas morning, I woke up to over eight inches of snow (that's a lot for us!) and a world blanketed in white!! It was the perfect and most magical white Christmas.
FOOD: Does puppy chow count? I feel like it's a Christmas food. Also, if you can't tell, I love peanut butter and chocolate. And covered in powdered sugar ( AKA snow.)
SMELL: Christmas trees. I love the smell of Fraser Firs, and I wish I could keep that smell in my house all year long. If I had to pick between a bouquet of flowers and a bouquet of boughs of Fraser, Fraser would win every time.
VERSE: For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. | Isaiah 9:6
