Gingerbread House Party!
Last year was the first year we did a Gingerbread Party. This year I had already been to EIGHT Christmas Parties (yes Julie, I actually counted) and was thinking I was going to just skip doing it this year. BUT, a few Mom's whose little ones were there last year called. Their children were SO looking forward to it.
I sent out an email two days ago to a few families with little ones. So tonight on this warm night, we decorated gingerbread houses. There was candy, icing, juice boxes, toys everywhere. . . I think it was a childs dream. Last year Santa came. This year I was too embarrased to ask our neighbors to borrow their Santa suit again. I meant to go to the after Christmas sales and get one. (I am going this year after Christmas, so if you see one, email me!) I totally forgot. So, no Santa.
Feeling a little guilty about that. So, promise to self and next years friends, Santa WILL BE HERE at the THIRD Annual Gingerbread Decorating Party. But more than the Gingerbread Houses and Santa, I am feeling so nostalgic, amazed and honored to have this precious group of sweet friends.
