While I love the snow and everything that comes with it (ice skating, sledding, snowboarding, etc.) sometimes it is just too cold to go outside. My sister found this place and I am so glad she did! Glazed & Amused is a ceramics studio where you can choose and paint your own ceramic pieces. After we chose our piece of pottery, we spent a relaxing afternoon painting and decorating our mugs as we watched the snow fall outside. It was just too convenient that there was a Starbucks right next door. We, of course, had to stop so we would have something warm for the drive home. My sister is so sweet and made the snowman mug for our mom for Christmas. I kept my baby it’s cold outside mug and have been drinking hot chocolate from it every night since.
One of our favorite Christmas traditions is making gingerbread girls. This year, we decided to switch things up and go with snowflakes. They were so much fun to make and decorate and delicious to eat! We decorate them with pastel colored icing and sprinkles. Some of my favorite snowflake cookies turned out to be the ones we piped designs on using white icing.
