Gingerbread Fun

We are not the crafty or baking type of family but we gave it our best shot! We attempted to make gingerbread houses and they may not be the prettiest in the world but we had a blast making them.

It's the 12th of November and I'm ready to decorate for Christmas! I know it's to early but for some reason I'm super excited! Years ago when my husband and I were first married we started a tradition of decorating Thanksgiving night. We have done it this way for the last 24 years. Our children always look forward to that night when we turn our home upside down! This year I think I want the season to never end. In a few short months seven to be exact my daughter will be getting married. We will still carry on our traditions but I have to face the facts things change. My daughter will marry and start her own traditions her way just as I did many years ago. My son will soon follow and then our little nest will be empty.To those of you with young children cherish every moment! Create your own traditions and don't blink because children grow up way to fast!
Think I'm going to round up my little crew and pull out the Christmas lights:)

Black Widow
