Hello Ginger!

This year I wanted to make sure that we did some awesome things with the kidlets to make memories...sometimes when you live in a blended family household, its hard to have traditions...because you have to celebrate things at different times, and sometimes not all your family can be together. This sometimes sucks...but we make the best of it...and try to cram as much into a week as possible and make tons of memories when all the babes are home!
We made gingerbread (graham cracker) houses! When the kids came into the dining room and saw all the candy I thought they were gonna fall over...Colton said "can I eat all this?!?"
Kendra's house....
Mary's house.....
My house.....
And the mister's house...when he came into the dining room...he first reaction was "this is stupid...I dont know how to make a gingerbread house" then it kept falling over and breaking and I thought he was gonna chuck it and let the dogs eat it. But after about 15 minutes he started getting into it...he was sitting at the table for about an hour and a half....and this was his finish product. He blew us all out of the water with his little wood stack made of caramel.
The one in the back is my doesnt have a complete roof because it kept caving in and I have no patience because it is a "roofless modern home" obviously they build these types of homes in places where they have no rain. Duh!
Megs kept calling it a shed....
There is one little part of our Christmas!
Happy Wednesday! Its my first day back at work since the 21st...and I cant concentrate on anything......Good thing I only have a 2 day work week!


  1. Your house would be great for San Diego, it never rains here! I found you through a twitter reteeet, but I enjoyed your post & will be back! If you'd like to see my blog (I'm a newbie) checo me out At Thanks and Happy New Year!

  2. I love your blog. I find myself laughing with almost every post. Our family is a blended family so I totally understand where you are coming the houses and am so going to have to do this with our kids next year.

  3. Love this post. I had the hardest time focusing on work yesterday too. I am literally waiting for the weekend. Transitioning back to "reality" is so hard after a break!!

    I hope you're having a great week and a Happy New Year!
