I have to admit it: I was a scrooge today! Why, you ask? Because of this:
I H.A.T.E. gingerbread houses. GGGRRRR. I just don't have the patience for them! Who can sit for a half an hour and HOLD the house together while the 4 kids crawl all over you, spill the little round candies all over the kitchen floor, eat most of the candy that is supposed to go ON the house, lick the frosting off the table...need I continue? Clearly, these are a grandma-only type of project. My grandma was so sweet and wanted to enjoy this activity with the kids. The darn thing collapsed before I even made it off her front porch. *sigh* I will NEVER be tempted to buy another one of these again. I've actually never purchased one...and now when my 4 year old pleads for one at the store this week, I will remind him that they turn mommy into "the, the, the , THE GRINCH!" (I hope some of you have seen Jim Carrey's Grinch!)
Now mom, don't worry. I know you are sending us one this week. I will save it for the babysitter this weekend : ) HA!
There. Now with that off my chest, here are some things I LOVE about the holidays:
Christmas tree hunting
Cozy, footy pajamas on 2 year olds!
