It's a Christmas Miracle ...

The snow has stopped and who knew I would be so excited to see rain again! The roads are looking a lot nicer and for the first time in almost 2 weeks I took my car out of 4 wheel drive. Yup it was a glorious day, except since it rain that meant no ZooLights. Rain + Kids is usually a cause for me to have a nervous breakdown. Public and me having a nervous breakdown may send me to a padded room. Hey wait do you think they would let you take a book? What I could actually get to read in peace! So today I decided to venture to Wal-Mart, you know I could walk the isles and when I need to scream at Cole to come back no one turns a head I fit right in ... LOL. What a thing to be proud of! After our Wal-Mart trip we decided to do Gingerbread Houses. I bought 3 house for Cole, Roy and my girlfriends daughter Kailey to do. Roy got the one house that didn't want to stay up, maybe it was a cosmic payback for Christmas. Who know but his in the only one that didn't work. Cole's and mine looked like a diabetic coma waiting to happen. I never claimed to be Martha or even close to Betty Crocker (unless it's making her cookies my Semi-Homemade way). So let's just say my pipping abilities were on the thick side, hey I guess it's like the way I live my life rich and full ... LOL.

So here are some cute pictures of our decorating skills along with a few of my presents from Rick. He picked them out all on his own, yes gasp and be impressed! Plus a fun one of Cole playing bowling with the set that my MIL crocheted for him and Caden. I love it they are super soft, since you know they have already hit a lamp and bounced off with out breaking it. She so knows my world! Hope you all had a wonderful Saturday!

(Yup it's perfect for the cold time of year)

(Wait that doesn't look right, it's too big)
That's better (don't look at the messy bed)
Don't you love the deep thought looks!

How it looks on the box (I'm sticking with that was a professional with a real pipping bag, not this cruddy one I cut the corner on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)

  4. Your hubby did great! And the bowling set is just the coolest! We have only had rain this Christmas and yesterday is was 66 degrees! In Ohio! The good thing about Ohio is if you don't like the weather, wait a day and it will change. We normally have lots of snow by now, so I understand the cabin fever associated with that. As my hubby says, "Spring is on the way!" He conveniently leaves out the fact that Spring is 3 months away. ;-)
