Last week Mom helped the girls decorate gingerbread houses. At supper club the kids decorated a gingerbread man. This week olivia baked cookies and let the girls decorate those. I love the festive mentality of "lets stick candy to stuff with icing." I'm starting think we need more of this throughout the year. There are not enough things in my life that are embellished with brightly covered candy pieces. The houses have been brightening our den from the top of the entertainment center. If you don't know why they are up there, it is a safe bet that you don't have children.
