Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat.....

I finally feel a little less hum buggy. We've got both trees up, we decorated the gingerbread barn and I have a Miss Piggy song stuck in my head. Do you know the one? Take the title and add "please to put a penny in an old man's hat. If you haven't got a penny then a half penny will do...." The part that is so, so wrong is that I can't find our CD with it on there so I just have my awful version running through my head - not the fun Muppets one. Otherwise I wouldn't mind too much - John Denver and the Muppets pretty much make any thing okay.
Anyway - here is what consumed our entire day yesterday. It was supposed to be a simple fun thing to do with the girls and somehow it morphed into this. I can not lie - it's actually cardboard and we glued most of the stuff on but we did use icing for the decorations! The girls were in heaven - candy for Meri and horses for Evie.

I love the fake gingerbread barn. Almost as much as I love the little tongue sticking out to make it work better. What are the trees made of - they are fabulous. The only thing that would have made this better was if a certain auntie had been there to help (probably help Meri eat the hanny). Tell Evie she did a wonderful job on the windows.

HOOORAY, A NEW POST! Love the barn. I bet it was a lot of fun to make. Very creative! We were thinking about doing one ourselves. We got this really cool cast iron mold. Mine definitely wouldn't be that fabulous though-and I don't have precious little elves to assist. Can't wait to see you all soon!

That pic of Meri with her tongue out is just too cute! Looks like a fun time. : )

Evie and Meri are so lucky to have a great mom like you who spends time nurturing them.
