happy Gingerbread house day

This year we dubbed December 1st as official gingerbread house day-just one of the little traditions we'd like to make for the kids to make this time of year extra special. They loved it, Levi really got into it and Cayden was more interested in eating the candy. She did spend a bit of time putting the frosting from the tube onto the candy then sticking it on the house-pretty good dexterity for a not quite three year old. Zac and I had fun too, really just enjoying them and watching them have fun is enough for us. What a gift those guys are. Aida did not make a house this year, she just ate a gingerbread snowman while she watched-next year sweetie, next year.

Here they are with thier masterpieces:



and a few of the process:



Finally, who could resist a sweet little girl loving on and kissing baby Jesus on the tiny nativity the kids got from Mammie a few years back. (While wearing Daddy's work glove.) Pray she always wants to be so close to him, loving him.


Now they are all in bed in a blissful, sugar induced comma-it truly was a wonderful and peaceful start for the Christmas season. Wish that for each of you, moments of peace in what can be a very hectic time and the reminder to create those moments-they don't always just happen. If we seek and pursue Christ's peace for our lives this Christmas and beyond, he will be faithful to help us find it.
