You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth
– Kahlil Gibran
Gingerbread making is one of our Christmas traditions now – I love smelling that spicy fragrance wafting through the house, it just says Christmas to me. But it was definitely trickier this year – Max wanted to be fully involved with every step and was hugely impatient to get to the decorating stage. But I love this moment of him stirring the batter. Iit was so sticky and really hard to stir, and I loved seeing him get his hands dirty with it – something he never would have done last year!
