Decorating Gingerbread houses is one holiday tradition I wouldn't mind getting out of, but the children seem to love it! Thankfully, I don't have to assemble the houses from scratch thanks to all the wonderful companies who have come up with various gingerbread decorating kits. The children added plastic figures to their houses this year which was a cute addition. Roman put a Storm trooper on his, but his gingerbread didn't survive long enough to take a picture of! He picked the candy off and ate it all! Anyway, we have a busy weekend here! Today my 5 year old Avery has a Christmas concert at her school and we are going to a church Christmas party tomorrow. I have been assigned to make the funeral potatoes. Have you ever had them? Kind of a silly name, but I guess they got their name from being brought to potlucks at funerals. They are actually very delicious! I mean who doesn't love potatoes covered in sour cream, butter, and cheese. Which reminds me I gotta go run to the store and pick up the ingredients before the children get home from school today. I am also going to try and squeeze in a movie tonight. I really want to see Collateral Beauty with Will Smith. It looks like it is going to be pretty good. I am saving Rogue One for when the boys are out of school and the crowds die down. How about you? Do you have any plans for the weekend? Do you have all your shopping completed. I have two presents I still have to buy and hope to take care of that tonight if I don't forget. Well, I better go! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!
