Keeping up Traditions

Well folks, we have officially reached the one week mark until I get to marry one fine, handsome, young man!!  I couldn’t be more pleased with how things are coming along, and how calm things are around here!weddingSo what does a gal do with one week left before the big day??  I say:: Build a Gingerbread House!!

But since this might be one of the last years we get to do one together, we decided to go all out and make it from scratch!beginningNow don’t be too critical if it doesn’t look exactly perfect.  We’re quite proud of ourselves for sizing it up as good as we did without even “cheating”. 😉
