Christmas here we come!

So the past 4 days have been nothing but getting ready for x-mas. Monday, Bryan and I decided we wanted to make gingerbread houses for family home evening. Little did we realize that it is truly a 3 day activity; one day to make the gingerbread and bake it, then let it sit overnight to harden, day 2 to put it together and sit overnight to harden again, and day 3 to decorate. So the first gingerbread house we made was not very good. So we tried again. Tonight is the night that we get to decorate the houses...So tomorrow you should see a picture of them all completed...Bryan even says he wants to post them so Brady can be jealous!...Sorry Brady...Bryan just gets jealous of all the wonderful cooking you do! We think it is great!

And last night we went Christmas shopping for Lisa and Eric since they are coming by plane and have limited room for presents...It was fun. I have wrapped all my gifts and they are under Bryan and I's fake tree...Since Don and MaryEllen could not find a real one they liked, for a price they like they used our fake one this year. I am glad that we could help in the festivities. MaryEllen commented that she thought it would be fun to have gifts under the tree before Christmas eve, like she always has. I guess that is when she gets around to wrapping the presents. It should be fun to watch the cats and hopefully not have them tear the presents open before Christmas. Bryan and I are ready for Christmas this year...Since it is Kambria's first Christmas. She does not really understand what is going on, but it is fun for us to watch her experience it.
Well until the gingerbread houses are complete....

Have fun decorating those Gingerbread houses. I'm glad you are having a fun holiday season. We have a fake tree too and we even have to leave off the back half of the branches at the bottom in order for it to fit in our apartment. We have too much stuff.
Love ya

I can't wait to see pics. Kevin & I want to do a gingerbread house, because i have NEVER made one before. Yes, almost 30 years old (in 1.5 years) and never made one. I'm a slacker. :)
