Merry Christmas

I thought I would share with you our Christmas and the fun and shenanigans we enjoyed.

Every year my daughter do the baking...a lot of baking.
They go to Ashley's house and bake all day while watching the Resident Evil movies...thats Christmasy isn't it ;)
This year they wanted to make t-shirts.
So they found a design and I made them these shirts...cute right?!!

This year was a bit different for us.
Christmas Eve is usually spent with Wayne's side of the family, but with the passing of Wayne's dad, and the family being so big (there are almost 50 of us now) it was decided that everyone celebrate with their immediate family.
So Christmas Eve was spent at my house this year.

Which meant we got this little cutie all to ourselves :)
Can you tell how much grandma and grandpa love this little guy.

So we decided to start a new tradition.
I used to make these mini gingerbread houses for the young ones that came to our New Years party.
This year I made them for our Gingerbread challenge.

Here are our masterpieces.
Mine is called "Winder Wonderland" and Wayne's "Christmas Wonderland"

Kristy's "Cozy Home" and her boyfriend Blake's "Winter of '96"

Ashley's "At the Lake" and her husband Tyler's is called "The Shitter's full" .... yes its an outhouse, lol.

Last but not least is Heather's "Monster House" and Sawyer's....well he just enjoyed eating it, teehee.

And the winner is....It's a tie.
Ashley and Kristy!!!
They won the trophy for the year and a gift.

And lastly we enjoyed opening some gifts.
Actually we enjoyed watching Sawyer open his gifts more than anything.
Look how happy he is to open his gift.
We got him a play kitchen (which he loves) but honestly, I think he would have been just as happy playing with the box, teehee.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed spending time with your family and friends.
