Maybe This Is What Heaven Sounds Like

{Scroll down for Chocolate Gingerbread Cookie Recipe}

Still playing catch up  here, haha! Every year St John’s Episcopal Church hosts the Memphis BoysChoir and the Memphis Chamber Singers for their Lessons and Carols (which tells the story of the birth of Jesus). It is always phenomenal. I pieced together some footage from this past Sunday and am sharing it here. If you don’t have time to watch all 3 minutes, at least watch the first 45 seconds.

 Those little boys’ voices are just unbelievable. As I sat there on Sunday night taking it all in I wondered if that might just be what heaven sounds like. 🙂

Every year we try to make some sort of homemade gift for our friends. Just a little something to spread some Christmas cheer. This year we decided to fill up little Christmas tins with goodies. Here’s what was in each one:

painted salt dough ornamentsPainted salt dough ornaments from this tutorial at Delighted Momma. I used a foam stamp that I found for $1.99 at Hobby Lobby to make the impressions on the salt dough. And then a can of spray paint for the color. 🙂
