Nothing says “Joyus” to me quite like my babies. And starting new traditions with them is one of my most favorite things to do. One of this years new traditions: growing our own candy canes! Turns out that candy canes don’t grow in your traditional run-of-the-mill dirt or soil. No, candy canes only grow in the finest of sugar. So we gently poured our sugar into a mason jar and proceeded to plant our candy cane seeds (peppermint Hershey’s Kisses). We blew them kisses and told them our funniest jokes (because candy canes can’t grow without love and laughter!), and this morning when they woke up, they found our Elf on the Shelf Jingles sitting amongst 5 brand new freshly grown candy canes! It’s a Christmas miracle!
