Aleisha decided to go all out and make a gingerbread house from scratch this year. It was a three-day process (bake, assemble and decorate), but well worth it, as the kids had fun helping.
Finally, finally…we made it to Christmas Village this year. I have these really vague memories of going here when I was little, and I’ve been planning to drag us there since Delton was born. We finally had some free time and relatively good weather. It was cold and crowded, but still lots of fun…just don’t get Aleisha started on the “realness” of the Santa!
