december 1 – housing

happy first day of december!


what did you do today? i mentally prepared myself. then i loaded the kids into the car and headed out. only to turn right back around (when i was a mile and a half down the street) to return home to get the stroller. sheesh!


back out we went. to walmart. and then to the mall. i purchased ALL of the stocking stuffers i need for davey, samantha and dave. whew! i HATE getting stocking stuffers. so i’m glad that’s finished. i also purchased one Christmas present today. and i used my Kohl’s bucks on something for me (a new purse). 


i saw on Elizabeth’s blog that she and Ellie assembled and decorated a gingerbread house the other day. i fell in love with the idea and found a $10 kit at Target (hers was a $10 kit from Costco) and tonight Dave, Davey and I decorated the house!



samantha did not appear to be pleased with her role of on-looker and gum drop taste-tester… though you couldn’t tell that from this photo:




the finished product:



here’s the side that davey decorated (aside from icing application, that is):


it was a fun evening and i’m thankful to Elizabeth for sharing her story on her blog…. so i would be motivated to try it. for dave and i, we’re pretty sure this is the first time we’ve EVER decorated a gingerbread house. so fun to share the experience with our davey!!

  1. Yay!! I’m so glad you decorated your first Gingerbread House! Fun, aren’t they, when someone else does all the baking, shaping, and supply gathering?? The pillaging has begun at our house, and sadly most of the candy is gone already! Ours won’t make it to Christmas… hope yours does!
