GingerBread People

Saturday, November 20, 2010

We have had the pleasure of having our one and only granddaughter with us this weekend. I wasn't sure all that we would do to keep her occupied this weekend, but the craft fair was one thing I had in mind. We went and did a little Christmas shopping and then went off to a couple of stores. My husband has been thinking about building a gingerbread house with her for a while so we hit the local AC Moore's for some craft ideas. The two of them picked up a couple of different things to do and one was decorating ginger bread cookies.

Here is their great creations!

It was a really nice day and now we are getting ready for a movie before bed. I am thankful for her and the fact that hanging out with grandma and grandpa is still not so bad.

    Gee, I wish I had a granddaughter! If I ever get one, I'll be so old I'll be in a nursing home! Sure looks like you had fun. Wish I could've joined ya. This surgery recover is taking a lot longer than I expected! Oh ya, I forgot, I did buy some tiny gingerbread people yesterday to hang on my tiny tree this year!!! Haven't had a tree in so long I can't remember! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    AWWWW! I love it.

My son and I decorate a gingerbread house every year. Then we leave it out all year.

Gingerbread cookies are my favorite. Remember when you could go to the corner and

buy them for five cents.

I think I'll do some cookies too this year. YUM!
