HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS// BAKING TRADITIONS

I am sure y'all are feeling the same, but it's been C R A Z Y lately! We have been so busy with work and all the hustle and bustle of getting things done; it has been so nice to come home and just relax. This is such a busy time of year for me at work. Some days I wake up and just wonder how in the world we are only days away from Christmas! Everyone always says there is no place like home for the holidays and it is so true! Tyler and I hit the road Friday after work to come home and spend a few days with my family before we head back to Little Rock to spend time with his!

Since we arrived in Fort Smith, we have spent time hanging out at the house. My sister, mom and I  have been baking non-stop! Yesterday we baked our favorite peanut butter blossoms, pies, cakes, cookies and chocolate covered pretzels. The list literally doesn't end- I even made homemade spiced jelly! When I was little it was a "must" every Christmas- so for traditions sake we made it again this year. It was so fun to spend time in the kitchen with all my favorite people. I spent all day in my pajamas- I mean who can complain about that?!
One of the cutest things we made was this pine cone cheeseball
I uploaded a video of mom putting all the little almonds on, just so cute! I will include the recipe for yall below (thanks Ang) - it really was so easy to make, just takes a little patience to put all the almonds on.

My pajamas are sold out, but I have linked another cute print on sale for under $40

Hope yall are having the best Christmas weekend, and making the best memories. Follow along with my Insta stories for all the fun family baking!
