Gingerbread House & Mini Wreath

 Grand girl made this gingerbread house yesterday. It's our little tradition. She does love to eat the frosting and candies :)  before the house is decorated! Pretty soon she won't need my help making one.
Sandy sent me this mini wreath made with a small mold and reflector. Very sweet and Thank You  Sandy!

This gal is ready for Christmas. All the gifts are wrapped and under the tree, except for the puppies. I just need to get a few groceries on Monday, for our dinner. Hubby has decided, again this year, NOT to go to his side for Christmas Eve as we have done for the last 20 years. It's not very Christmas's my hope to have more Christmas spirit in this home!

I keep thinking that Christmas is on Saturday. Last Sunday's church service was so NICE. The choir sang a beautiful song and then the hand bells played one too! Can't wait to this Sundays service!

Happy Weekend!

I wish a wonderful Christmas to you! I wish I was as prepared as you, as all the gifts are not even bought yet!
Merry merry!

Look at that sweet little grandgirl with her gingerbread house. How cute is that. Glad you hubby made the decision to NOT go- sounds like that was a wise choice.
It's funny- I keep thinking Christmas is Saturday, too. I thought it was just a blond thing but I guess not if you think that way too. xo Diana

Your sweet little granddaughter looks like you.
We made glitter houses last week-end. Oh my we have had glitter everywhere.
I am almost done. I have had amigraine for 2 1/2 weeks and not being able to go many places. It's a good thing that I plan ahead.
Have a peaceful holiday. (((((HUGS))))

The Grand girl is so cute and that gingerbread house is wonderful. What a fun tradition. I've got most of my gifts bought and what I don't have, well I'll give IOU's to the adults. LOL it's been that kind of year.

Merry Christmas!
