Wonderful Winter Weekend
I hope you had a nice weekend. Mine was filled with time with family, holiday activities, and lots of snow. On Saturday, we drove to my mother-in-laws to do our yearly gingerbread house decorating. I have decorated a gingerbread house every year since I can remember. When I was little my mom would bake all the pieces for the houses and then my dad would build them. Then all us kids would get together with frosting and candy and have a blast decorating.
This year my husband and I decided to work on one together. I've never made a wood pile before (from pretzels) and I think it's a nice addition. Also, chocolate rocks were a new addition this year that made fantastic paths.
The drive was a little rough on the way there - took an extra hour due to the snow - but it was still fun because that meant an extra hour of holiday music in the car. Definitely got my fill.
On Sunday, I almost finished my Christmas shopping! So close. And then of course there was grocery shopping. And then present wrapping! We officially have presents under our tree; it's a beautiful thing.
This morning I took the dogs out in the snow, which was almost up to my knees...
THEY HAD A BLAST.
I really don't think I've ever seen Lincoln and Jax have so much fun together. They were sprinting around like crazy. I was laughing hysterically. I hope that tired them out!
Well I'm off to work. I hope you had a wonderful weekend and Monday treats you kindly.
Do you have lots of snow right now? How was your weekend?
