Christmas eve fun

Other than the fact that it's raining cats and dogs outside, rather than snowing a romantic blanket around our house, this has been a perfectly lovely Christmas eve!

All 4 of us went to the Y for a pre-Christmas workout, joined the crowds at grocery stores and Best Buy and then came home to some holiday fun.

I've always wanted to do a gingerbread house and may have done one once during my childhood... but it's been a long time. I saw this super cute ($20) kit at our local gourmet grocery. It haunted me so I had to go back today and pick it up for Olivia and I to do together.

It was a big hit. It was a bit hard to navigate the frosting, but O loved putting the candies on the house. She only ate a *few* pieces.

This was the final result. One happy kid on a sugar high!! And this is just the beginning.

oliva-----your momma always wanted to be a baker when she grew up. Looks as if you might be a "chip off the yatta, yatta, yatta" Have a wonderful time tonight when you sing songs to Jesus at church, hang up stockings, put out santa cookie & milk. GET TO SLEEP so he can come to your house. Hope he remembers your novie ( and barbie) Enjoy your 4 or 5 days at grandma's
