German Pancakes


Our cute friend Kierste from Simply Kierste just released her cookbook, Simply Tradition – 70 Holiday Ideas for Families. I am sure that you have seen all of Kierste?s amazing creations on Pinterest and social media (such as her darling Farmhouse Wood Framed Christmas Ornaments!) and I am always blown away by her amazing creativity and talent. So, when I was finally able to get my hands on one of her books, I was so excited to try one of her fun family traditions for myself!

  1. My favorite tradition is going to midnight service. The lights are low and we all have a small candle in our hands. As the service continues the lights go down and two people have their candles lit. They share their light with the person next to them. Before you know it, the church is lite up with candle light. Beautiful and moving, as we sing Silent Night.
