You Can't Catch Me... I'm the Gingerbread Man!


 From my kitchen...

Gingerbread Men... er... cookies.  My gingerbread man was rusty!  Rather than go spend extra money at the store, the thrifty option was to do with the cutters we had.  I think the children had even more fun this way!  Don't let little things get in the way of a fun time with your children.  Mine have declared gingerbread cookie making to be a new tradition!

  1. Good Morning!
    I loved the lights and they speak volumes :) And your Gingerbread man and cookies were wonderful.
    May all your days be filled with His joy. Thinking of you this morning!
    Merry Christmas!
    I am making you something; not sure when I can get it out to you, maybe next year LOL...
    Blessings, Roxy

  2. Oh Roxy,

    You are just to sweet! Thinking of me when there's so much to do. Thank you.

    We are keeping things very simple. Having company in for the funeral, traveling to Kansas City for Thanksgiving, and some major van repairs have zapped our budget, so I've still shopping to do.

    I've bought one Christmas present, two stocking stuffers, and my turkey. Amazingly, I do not feel stressed. The things that truly need to get done will get done. Those that don't, oh well!

    Happy Christmas Roxy, may your days and nights be peaceful and happy.

  4. I just love your gingerbread snowman and cookies!!! They look amazingly... delicious!

    I have been baking for days it seems and I have finally got all my cookies platters put together.

    I just love to bake and give to others, it just puts joy in my heart.

    Now I think I need a salty treat!

    I hope you are doing well this holiday season. May the Joy of the Lord carry you through this New Year approaching!

    Blessings,

  5. Hi Amy,
    Sounds like me during a normal Christmas season. Maybe next year.... Everything is scaled way back this year. It's okay. We cannot pretend Grandma's not moved to Heaven. We miss her so much.
    Blessings,

  6. Hi Roxy,
    It was wonderful. The children just took the lead in putting up the tree and the lights. I needed that. The pain from Mother's death was just too fresh. Christmas is a wonderful healing salve.
    Blessings,

  9. Hi there,
    I am popping over from Mom's the Word linkup.
    Those little ones surely do grow up quickly. Good to make sure to enjoy every moment. What a happy memory you are making.

  11. Hello Hope,
    You are so right about little ones growing quickly. My son just commented on how little I'm getting. It's not me. It's him. He's now over 6 ft. ~smile~
    I'll be over in a bit for a blog visit.
    Happy Christmas,
    Laura
