Our Solstice (better late than never)

I am still finding traditions for our family and every year we do a little more. Here are just a few pictures from our Winter Solstice.
In the morning the boys woke up to find gifts the Solstice faeries left. Here's Evie hugging his new doll:)

We made some treats for our hungry birds and squirrels. We simple smeared peanut butter on pine cones and rolled them in bird seeds. We also scattered seeds around our yard.

We also went to a Solstice potluck that evening and brought dinner rolls...shaped like stars:) Pared great with the pumpkin curry soup a friend made! We played, lit a bonfire, and read poetry at the party! We also burned notes in the fire of the things we want to let go of or leave behind.

The kids eagerly watched as the birds quickly discovered their Solstice treats!

*Welcome Winter*

I love the Solstice Fairies. Father Winter comes to our house and fills our waiting stockings. But I think I like the Solstice Fairies better. This is the second time this week I have read about them.
