Gingerbread house and Cookie making

December has just flown by!! How is it the 27th?? Slow down time.

We decorated Gingerbread houses at Kathy's and that was fun for both the kiddos and us adults.

Little man in front of Amma's tree.



She did such a great job on her house

Austin watched and happily enjoyed stuffing his face full of graham crackers

Even Allyson decorated a house. BUT it wasn't until Amma sat down and helped her. 

the picture on the bottom right makes me smile every.time I see it. I asked her to smile for me and usually she just ignores me. She thought about it and then gave me a smile-ish. I love it! I really enjoyed watching her pick out the candy and placing it on the house. And she knew what candy she wanted. No! No! Yes! Oh this girl!!

I never took a picture of our finished houses :(  Mommy fail.


we also made sugar cookies YUM!

I wanted to make them from stratch but I decided to save myself some time and probably tears and just used the betty crocker stuff. Let me tell you that they came out pretty delish!! Mmm!!

Tess helped make cookies too but she didn't want me to post any pictures of her bc she doesn't like the way she looked. Silly Tessie you look just fine! But I will respect her wishes for now.




She looks so insanely grown up doesn't she?? My oh my!


Her Santa cookie :) She's growing up too fast. She doesn't need or want help doing things. It's bittersweet. My baby is growing up.
