As you can imagine with 5 kids and 2 dogs (not to mention 2 foster puppies) and a cat, I have been VERY busy trying to get ready for Christmas. I think I spent 2 hours just wrapping gifts tonight, just to have them ripped apart day after tomorrow!! Sigh!! In other words, I am being lazy tonight and just posting lots of cute pics and video from our Christmas cookie and Gingerbread House making adventures. To preface, let me just say that we all survived. The house, the kids, the tummys, the Grandmother and even the parents!! The cookies, however, weren't so lucky!! Hehe!! I am still scraping sprinkles off the walls and the ceiling and the dogs!!!!

I rest my case!!! Hehe!!

Such concentration!!

In the end, they all had their masterpieces!!

Charlie's needed it's own zip code!!

and they ALL needed napkins!!!

Now on to the Gingerbread House. This was our first year making this and I have to say that it was a lot of fun, even though every single child made a Gingerbread House this year at school, of course! What's up with that???

Scrumptious, don't ya think??? Will let you know after Christmas, that is if I get any!! Hehe!!

New home construction - hard work!!!

Gotta end with some sister Christmas cuteness!!

and the final Christmas Card pic

Merry Christmas!!!!


  1. FABULOUS family memories, friend. Just wonderful.
