Elfing Around

I am definitely in the holiday spirit.

Example A: See sidebar to the left. On the top widget, click play. This is Rambo & I wishing you Happy Holidays. I know, Mark has some great moves, huh? Want your own? Check out ElfYourself by OfficeMax

Example B: I finished decorating the tree and wrapping the presents. Well, the presents I bought already, at least. There are a few on my list who I haven't gotten presents for yet. So just in case you might be one of them, you better be good for goodness sake.

Example C: I made my own wreath, and bought all the parts at Michael's. It probably ended up costing me around $12!

Example D: Kim and I made a homemade gingerbread house. And when I mean homemade I mean I made the gingerbread from scratch, cut out the house pieces from it, made the icing cement and decorated it with Kimmy. It is rather gaudy but I LOVE IT, it reminds me of Candyland. As a sidenote I will probably never do this again because I don't even like gingerbread and kneading that dough with molasses sort of grossed me out. And I made the biggest mess my kitchen has ever seen. And if you have ever seen me cook you can imagine how big of a mess there was. Next year I will attempt a sugar cookie house AND we will remember the chimney.

Also that green glob to the right of the house is a tree. Yes, a tree. and the blue blog is a pond. Because real gingerbread men need to fish.

What were the boys doing while we made the gingerbread house? Well Mark tried to steal candy (which as you can see, doesn't fly in my kitchen.)

And they made some lures. And tested them. IN THE BATHTUB.
I love the holidays. How have you been elfing around lately?
