It is definitely feeling like Christmas here now for me. First clue was the 6:30am dash to the supermarket. I got a parking spot, I got my shopping and I got the hell out. Success!
And then I came home and the cookie fest began.
|Rolling and cutting.|
|The girls got organising.|
|They delved into every cupboard and pulled out every sprinkle, etc.|
|And then the fun began.|
|Three generations getting sticky and silly.|
|I did the cake.|
|And we all worked on the gingerbread house together.|
It is the first year we haven't used a pre-bought kit.
Making it stand up and stay stood up is not easy!
|Some, not all, of the decorated cookies.|
Happy, but exhausted, girls.
The house is still clean - other than the dining room floor which is now covered in sprinkles of all sorts. The sausage stuffing is made. As is the red cabbage for tomorrow nights dinner - a homage to himself's Scandinavian roots. The girls and the grandparents are now watching a Christmas dvd and I am trying to chisel hardened icing from the dining room table.
I do hope you are having as much fun as we are.
