Gingerbread for Two
We try to spend time primarily with our families while home in Bentonville, since we get to see each other on a daily basis in Arkadelphia. It was nice to get to do an activity though.
I picked up one of those Gingerbread House kits from the friendly local Wal-Mart a few weeks ago. I know, I know, it's not a legit deal, but, it was a house, made of gingerbread, and we were going to make that sucker.
It was fun. We tried our best on the decorating, and, with her woman's touch, the house doesn't look too bad. Of course, all the credit for that really is on her side. I had a decent grip on the icing dispersion, which really only goes so far. It was her decorating eye, and our insistence on doing our absolute best to make it the greatest edible-house ever, that made it come out in the end.
I'm pretty proud of it, and wanted to get it up before I hopped in bed for the night.
Tomorrow is Christmas, and I wanted to make sure that all 2 of you that read this have a Merry Christmas. I hope you are with family, or with people who love you on this wonderful Joyous season. A season where everyone becomes a little happier, a little kinder, and a little more compassionate. Something that our LORD would want for his son on a birthday.
I better hit the hay, so that Santa will bring me something on his sleigh!
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!
