Merry Christmas Everyone!

The kids are counting down the hours, they have this silly idea that come one minute past midnight they can get up and open their presents - think again kids!

Today Abby I and got creative, thanks to Rachel (her wonderfull gingerbread house) I decided that a gingerbread house looked so cool we had to do it! We couldn't find a kit so decided to make one from scratch.  I dont actually like ginger so we made belgium biscuit mix and made one up here it is in the construction:

then here is Abby showing her (well us) trying to get it stuck together - not easy I can tell you see the crack down the middle of the roof!

But boy did they have fun putting it together, now sorry not the best picture - will get some better ones tomorrow (but they will still go on my "Twas the night before Christmas" layout thanks to Nic Howard).

We also did some chocolate wheelbarrows and some christmas puddings out of mellowpuffs!

Busy day and all this I might add whilst not feeling that flash (even though it was my once a year self inflicted - remind me NOT to do that again next year lol!)

All of those that commented on my blog over the last two days will get a RAK so please e-mail me your address and full names (apart from the local ladies - I know where to find you lol) and I will pop a small something in the post to you!

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and merry christmas and a very happy new year!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas ... Happy Holidays! Your 'ginger'bread house looks fab ... we just put one together using a kit I got from England but it doesn't look as flash as yours.
