Gingerbread Cottage

On the twenty-third day of Christmas...

Can you believe there are only TWO MORE SLEEPS until Santa comes??? I'm freaking out a little right now. I still have three gifts to buy and there is a monsoon going on outside my house right this minute. Seriously wondering if we should build a boat.

The boys are PUMPED about Christmas and have been a little bit grumpy and not-so-obedient this week, but I sort of think that may be par for the course this time of year. Next Monday (presents and family gone) will likely be a ROUGH day for the three of us. Hopefully Santa will bring us some fun things to help us through.

On Sunday, the boys decorated our Gingerbread Cottage. We were going to host a Gingerbread Decorating Party a few weekends ago but there were too many conflicts on the first night, too many conflicts on the second night, we got sick on the third try, and our friends who volunteered to host is on Sunday must've had a conflict because we never heard from them. Oh well. The boys went with Eddie to the grocery store and while they were gone I got everything set up and ready to go. They were AWESOME at the decorating part. They worked together, didn't fuss, and did a pretty good job. Will enjoyed sticking candy on, taking it off and licking it, and sticking it back down. I wound up hurriedly wrapping things up because I was worried he might get sick from all of the sugar. It is currently residing atop my china cabinet because no one can reach it there. :)
