Merry Christmas, from our ragtag bunch of misfits to yours!



homemade christmas presents!

I made a few Christmas presents this year, and now that they’ve all been gifted, I can share them here!

not a creature was stirring

…not even the gummy dinosaurs that had taken over the gingerbread house (nor the gummy army man that was trying to drive the dinosaurs away).┬áThis was my first time decorating a gingerbread house! Obviously we went a little non-traditional, but it was a fun and yummy project!

Happy Christmas to all!

(meager) christmas decorating

I like the way Christmas decorations look, and the celebratory spirit that goes along with the decorating, but it seems a little silly to go all out decorating our house for the holiday when we aren’t home for the better part of the two weeks surrounding it. For that reason, who knows if we’ll ever have a Christmas tree. But I hauled out a few decorations that are now scattered around the house. And I have some lovely Christmas tree ornaments that deserve better than to languish in a box in a closet. So for this year, I displayed some of my favorite ornaments as a table centerpiece as shown below.
