Busy as little elves...getting ready for Christmas...baking some sweet treats!!!!

I am adding our gingerbread house to the Three Muses Challenge this week....theme "home sweet home" since we have been home baking and creating all week...

Hi Everyone.... We have been so busy this weekend and today....We went to Brad's work party Saturday and had a wonderful time...Sunday we made our family gingerbread house....Cole was so meticulous with his candies...he is so sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!! and Monday we spent about 8 hours baking up yummy sweet treats for Christmas.....I will make some trays for all the people we love....and send you all some virtual treats!!! We are busy as Santa's elves...but having the greatest time ever!!!
I also wanted to share this catchy tune with you all...I hope you enjoy it and I hope it becomes a favorite...I know once I hear it I keep singing it....lol.....

Holy MOLY, are you joshing me? That is an incredible gingerbread house! Whoa! Look at little Cole, a detail oriented artist! And all those cookies. Mmmmmmmmmm. I can smell them from here. Every year, a friend of ours bakes hundreds of cookies with his grandma, and they always send a small tub to the girls. So sweet. I'm sure baking and decorating them is as fun as eating them. Well, almost. :)

I know I've said it before, Diana, but MAN, you are one productive lady! You are always, always creating something. Jeepers, are you taking something? And where can I get some?! Or do you just never sleep? Your recent artworks are as stunning as ever. And your little gourdy snowman is fantastic! You know I'm going to go voting next.

Hope you and your beautiful family have a fantastic, fun filled Christmas. I hope Santa is extra good to Cole this year. He deserves it.
