Tis The Season

What a busy time of year!! We are trying to enjoy it to the fullest. Khara and Kelsey officially started Christmas vacation Wednesday afternoon-YAY!!! I love having my children home!! We are looking forward to two full weeks of them being home from school!! Now, if we could just get Mark home a little more. He's been putting in some looong hours to make sure all of those packages get there in time. That should come to an end after Monday, thankfully!! :-)

A picture's worth a thousand words, so they say, so here are some of the happenings around our home the last couple of weeks:

Kaden in awe over the Nativity Set. (That has been rearranged 100 times yet miraculously escaped getting broken.)

Khara lost her front tooth. It's amazing how much that can change a person's looks. We've had a chuckle or two over that one. :-)

Right before bedtime. It was so loose that I told her I was afraid she might end up swallowing it. That got her inspired-- out it came!!

We discovered last year that we LOVE gingerbread cookies!! Even Kaden "cut" some out this year. Along with the gingerbread boys and girls, presents, and trees, he somehow managed to grab a baseball cap cookie cutter, much to the girls dismay. ;-)

Yummy, yummy, cookies!!

The construction crew for our first ever gingerbread house. LOTS of fun!!

Completed project.

Kaden's favorite--the FROSTING!!! :-)

Well, Mark is planning on leaving the house around 4 a.m. to join up with some friends to go duck hunting. If I'm going to have those biscuits and gravy, thick country ham, a dozen eggs,...ready by 3 (ha, ha), I guess I better sign off.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!

Too funny! I love Khara's new look! The gingerbread house looks fun and the cookies look so good! I need to make some of those yet for this year.

You are a better woman than I am. Cooking breakfast at 3?!!!!?!!! That would be the day around here. Actually my husband is not really into breakfast so I'd be off the hook anyway. I love you gingerbread house. Very, very cool!
