5. Try Eggnog

6. Decorate a Gingerbread House

I checked this off my holiday list last week. I'm proud to say that my gingerbread house actually stayed together!! The sides are rather unique since I decorated it with a four year old, but at least it didn't fall apart!

7. Go Sledding

This was my favorite thing to do when I was growing up. I don't care what others say- you can never be too old for sledding! Don't forget to bring a few friends along!

8. Enjoy a Candy Cane

I recently tried candy cane flavored hot chocolate and oh my is it tasty! Check out this cool post showing you how to make different candy cane flavored treats https://www.brit.co/candy-cane-recipes/

Grab a needle, some popcorn and get stringing! Your tree will look even more fabulous after.

What you're probably asking yourself during your season of waiting.

God, What's Next?

We spend most of our lives waiting for something. Maybe you're waiting for a job opportunity to open up, or for a professor to email you back because you procrastinated on your assignment, or maybe you're waiting for the next chapter in your life to start.

You may not have a walk with Christ and I encourage you to be open to starting a relationship with him but even your time of waiting isn't in vain. Waiting is a hard thing to do but it is so worth it in the end. The Bible even tells us this in Ecclesiastes.

What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.
