Gingerbreading

C13 told me some time ago that December 12 was National Gingerbread House Day. That was cool with me, I took the day off to do gingerbread making and baking. Q11 was a little upset because why in the world were we going to do gingerbread house making on a WEEKNIGHT. She had a HARP lesson, too.

Both good points, but the National Gingerbread House Day won out. I made two big houses. C13 decorated one to go to Im. down the street because she's going into the hospital later this week.  We forgot to take a picture of that one. And I also made three small houses, each unique.

The house on the left was made by Q11, the next was mine, you can tell because of all of the flowers. I have a thing for the flowers, the tall one Q11, and the short, squat one C13 decorated. I wante to do that one, too. Maybe I'll make another one like that next year. Fun fun!

Advent II

After forgetting to hang up cookies two days in a row, I decided to hang them all up like C13 wanted anyway.

I wasn't sure how I'd do it, but I managed. I tied them all to strong and counted down. Each girl has their numbers on their side of the table.


This is just a gratuitous picture of Q11 in her coat. I took the photo to show the person who gave us the coat, but then TCR did this as Q11 tried to take a casual photo. Ha!

Advent.

This year I thought I'd do an advent calendar for the girls. One cookie a day for 24 days. Today was day 3. I made cookies 1-24 for each girl, some numbers are replaced by Christmas cookie shapes. But today was day 3. They are getting hung in the dining room each night for the AM consumption.
