Happy Holidays

Take one gingerbread house kit (yes, I went for the store bought option, so time poor), two utter perfectionists and some candy. These elements combine each year for a frustrating and argument-filled craft session. The process has never been quite the warm and fuzzy one I've been after.
Each year Poppet and I look forward to building our gingerbread house. And each year we get super-cross with each other as we try to make the darn thing stand up!
The solution was to buy a kit which held four mini-houses. There was a little tension during the construction phase but after that things actually went well. We could each decorate our own house and 'parallel play' like the couple of toddlers we are.

We read a cute book about Santa getting stuck on the needle of the CN Tower during a blizzard. As if!

This is this morning's snow. Already melting. Sniff...

I wandered past our lovely German gift shop the other day and saw and Angel Chime in the window. Suddenly, memories came flooding back of having one in our house when I was a child. I remembered the sweet sound it made and playing with the little angels every chance I got. Had to buy one!

And we are on holidays at last! This final week of school has been exhausting and rushed and just a nightmare. Why on earth we couldn't finish up on Wednesday so there is time for some Christmas Spirit to actually build before the big day is beyond me. We will now attempt to fill our boots over the weekend with baking, lounging, skating, crafting, snacking and wrapping.
Oh, and with some Monopoly too apparently...

Happy Holidays and a Merry Christmas to you all...
