It is official, I am in full holiday mode. Studying Christmas has helped me get into the mood. Gingerbread houses were so much fun. We made them before we homeschooled so it was fun to turn that into a group activity instead. The kits we made never had candy the girls wanted to eat. The homeschool version has lots of yummy candies and they nibble. That kind of grosses me out since I know it is sitting around collecting dust, but it probably isn't the worst thing they eat. Nor will it kill them.
We had Erik's work Christmas Party last night and it was fun. We had yummy dinner at Whaler's Catch with door prizes. We ate REALLY late though so we were starving when the food came. That made it more delicious. When we got home, my friend Kathy had all the kids showered, in bed and was doing some laundry. I loved her already, but it did make me love her a little more. I wished we had stayed out later. She told us "Stay out as late as you want!" We were home at ten. That was as late as we wanted. We are old married people. With a very early church service. I should be getting ready. Have a blessed Sunday.
