Christmastime is here

A little of what we've been up to this week:

Gingerbread house decorating

Thankfully the kiddos forgave their sleep-deprived mother who mixed up the roof pieces and the side pieces creating more of a gingerbread diorama.

If you look closely you can see the owner of the house hiding safely inside from hungry bellies.
George was nice enough to throw some M&Ms his way though.

Our daily visit from Gram-E

What would the kids and I ever do without her and Mr. Pyles?

Gingerbread men (and princesses of course)

We can't forget Princess Ariel

Our elf is getting trickier by the day

His roost yesterday.

George shows off his current spot

A little stalker-like?  Maybe.  But even I'm being better than normal today so I know it's working.

This may be my last post before the BIG night (depending on how the next 36 hours goes!).  If so, a Merry, Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful readers (particularly those compulsory ‘fans’ like my mother, Barbara, Brooke, Julie, Eileen, and especially Will!).  I have loved hearing from all of you at various times and on various subjects and I am very thankful that you all take the time to read my silly anecdotes about my life at home.  This blog has been one of the greatest and unexpected pleasures of 2011 and I am very excited to see what surprises 2012 holds in store for all of us.  Please continue to keep in touch with me...

...and I’m happy to take everyone along for our little ride!
