christmas adam

for as long as i can remember, we've referred to december 23rd as christmas adam in our house. if i remember right, it was my mom who coined the phrase in our house and when we were younger, we thought it was downright hilarious and witty. 

i've used it in regular conversation throughout the years and most people just think i'm crazy. that may be true, but not because i call december 23rd christmas adam. adam came before eve and december 23rd comes just before december 24th, christmas eve. 

and because i thought it would be fun to actually have an activity planned for the day before all the festivities really begin, we decided to make christmas adam cookies and share them with some friends. 
leah was our little helper. she was quite proficient at rolling the dough balls in our holiday-colored sugar and couldn't have looked cuter in her rolled up, over-sized apron. 
i'm hoping a tradition has been born.
