Christmas Happenings

Yesterday we built a little gingerbread village. Kate ate more then she decorated. Kendall was very serious in her decorating.

We got word that someone special was sending a box with lots of little gifts for the girls. I put together this little advent countdown mantel. We'll put a present for each of the girls in the little buckets counting down the last 10 days before Christmas.


  1. I got a kick out of your comments abbout the girls decorating their gingerbread houses. That's what we did Sunday, too. Hannah spent forever and was so careful. Stella had very little candy to use on her house because she kept eating it all!

  2. Haha! Wow...You would think we were related. However, I decided to forgo the gingerbread house and just stick to decorating sugar cookies. After all, they are two busy and very rough boys and I didn't know gentle they would be with a structure such as a gingerbread house! Anyway, that is what we did Sunday too! I hope to post my pics soon.
    Love to all!

  3. Aww, when I first saw that top picture I felt a bit confused like, "Wait, that isn't what her mantle looks like!". Even though I've been there I guess I still think of you in your old house sometimes!
