Gingerbread House

Every year the girls and I try to do a gingerbread house for our centerpiece at Christmas time.  We did this one last night.  We always have so much fun decorating it and last night was no exception.  Good family memories.  I think it looks very festive on the table. 

We had a dusting of snow this morning.  Enough to excite the girls anyway.  It actually was warmer this morning than it has been.  We are already at 32 degrees.  I did my walk this morning, which felt really good.  I have had to do inside exercises this week due to the weather.  I much prefer outside but, you know, you got to go with the flow.  I am not dedicated enough to walk in 3″ of water with 40 mph wind gusts.  Maybe someday but not today.

Here is a picture of the new study we are starting today.  I think it will be very good.  This week’s lesson was on Eve.  Next week we will be studying Rahab and Mary Magdalene.  Well, I better get busy.  The ladies will be here in just a few minutes.  God bless.

Today was spent doing a very fun project.  Our gingerbread house.   Last year the girls and I made our first gingerbread house.  We decided it needed to be a  tradition at our house.  So much fun.  Here’s a picture of our gingerbread house.  Not competition material but great for our house.   This will be our centerpiece until Christmas.   When I do things like this with my girls, I can’t help but be thankful for our lives together.  The laughter, the Christmas music, a warm fire.  I am a very blessed woman and I thank God for his blessings.   George had some work to do today so we didn’t get to go to Jessica’s this weekend.  The girls and I are doing girl stuff today,  the gingerbread house, some Russian Tea Cakes and maybe some peanut butter roll candy.   Temperatures were cold again last night.  7 degrees when we got up this morning.  Not much wind though so it doesn’t feel as bad as yesterday.  The weather forecast says freezing rain for tonight and early Sunday morning.  YUK!  Hopefully it won’t happen so we can go to church.  Oh well, I guess we’ll see what tomorrow morning brings.  Well time to make some more memories (Russian Tea Cakes).  God Bless.
