What We've Been Up To

From Adriel:

Besides cards, that is! =) This time of the year there are just other fun things to do that grab our attention.

The kids made "faux" gingerbread houses (with graham crackers)... these were our budget gingerbread houses. Cheap graham crackers, candy from the dollar store, tube frosting (probably the most expensive element)... still just as fun! The kids were busy for quite a while decorating their houses. While they decorated, we got some baking done. =)

We visited a Christmas Trains lights display... these people are really into trains and their whole backyard was pretty much dedicated to the display. I took pictures before it got dark, but at night time it was lit up. Very cute! =)

Had to show off my Christmas rolls... I baked them ahead of time and put them in the freezer. Of course, I sampled one first... with butter on it. It was yum-yum-yummy!

We hope you're enjoying the fun things that make this time of the year special to you, even if it's just sitting on the couch! Whatever makes it special, enjoy yourself and if we don't pop in here before the 25th, have a Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!!
