...gingerbread houses

When the kids were small one of our Christmas traditions was to make a gingerbread house. Somewhere around the teenage years when sports ruled our lives, spending time and money on this activity somehow lost their appeal. Last night Katie and I were at loose ends--shopping and wrapping complete, friends too busy to socialize--what to do, what to do...



We popped in "Elf," scrounged around for gingerbread house building materials, poured a little wine, and....voila! Not quite as elaborate as they used to be, but they turned out pretty cute, all the same. A delightful evening.

You lovely women are having fun! If I had the glass of wine, my gingerbread house would look as if the wrecking crew had just been by. Happy holidays to you and those you love.

It WAS fun and I am still recovering. I'm so grateful to have a few more days off.
