Finally uploaded my pictures

So far the kids Christmas holidays have been a lot of fun. We have played in the snow, made gingerbread, and decorated cookies.

I have been taking pics but have not found the time (or just a little lazy, lol) to get them uploaded to the computer. So here goes.

First photos are of the layout that I have completed. Again as I noted before I have not decided whether to list on ebay or Etsy. I have decided to wait til after the holidays because I worry it will just get lost in the mix.

We have had quite some fun playing in the snow over the last few days. It is really weird snow because it is very light and fluffy (not common for us) and we are having issues making snowballs and snowman (they keep falling apart). We did decide to start a fort but the kids became bored so it ended up more like a horseshoe!

Even the dog is having a blast

Next on the list were gingerbread houses. I was so excited. I had a kit in my hand earlier this season and decided that even though I am not a baker we would make them from scratch. So I found this recipe, it was supposed to be more kid friendly in taste so I thought I would give it a try. Well the cookie is awesome but note I used the word cookie and not house! This recipe does not contain molasses, I now believe that without the molasses the dough is not strong enough to hold the shape long enough to get them on the pan. After about 20 attempts I gave up and we made cookie shapes instead.

We spent the morning today decorating them and it was great fun!

This will be my last post until after Christmas so I would like to wish everyone the happiest holidays!!
