Every year the girls and I try to do a gingerbread house.  I think this years one turned out pretty good.  We buy the kit and then decorate it however we want.


Another thing we try to do every year is enjoy this coffee.  It comes from Fresh Market and we LOVE it!  It is (of course) only around at Christmas so that makes it kinda special.  I think I will have to make us some after I finish this post.

Grace is finally feeling some better.  She had to go back to the doctor on Monday.  They gave her an inhaler to use here at home and that seems to be helping.  Julie is feeling better as well.  Yeah!

We had ice on Sunday so church was cancelled.  The youth were supposed to do their annual Christmas play.  We were kinda glad church was cancelled, that way the girls didn’t miss doing their parts in the play.  Hopefully, we will get to do it this Sunday-depends upon the weather.  Sometimes December is a rough month here.  Today is nice though with sunshine.  The temperature is mild-40 degrees with not much wind.

Well, I guess that’s about it.  That Christmas coffee is calling my name.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. Your gingerbread house always turns out great! We are making gingerbread men this year so we can eat them, lol. 🙂 I am so glad everyone is feeling better.

    Enjoy your coffee!



  2. What a great gingerbread house. I am glad that Julie and Grace are doing better. I know that my inhaler sure helps.

    I can’t wait until we get above freezing. This cold weather we have been having is unusual for us this early in the winter.

    Stay warm and have a wonderful evening.



  3. Great Gingerbread house. We too bought a kit to do with the girls over next weekend. We have always made one from scratch with royal icing, but this with me not having as much time I decided to buy one. One year we even made a barn with all the animals. ( I can’t imagine I ever had that much time on my hands hehe……)
    That coffee sounds delish! We have Christmas tea but I have never had christmas coffee.
    I am happy everyone is better.
    Take care
