  • What a fun, fun day. We all started off the morning by sleeping way in. This was a good bit past what I had intended to do since I wanted to be some productive this morning. Now, I was still able to completely clean out a closet before any of the kids woke up.
  • Keaton and Whitman had spent the night at Grannymom and Grandpa's house so I am sure that they were up early this morning. The rest of my people here didn't even start stirring until 10 or after. 
  • Campbell and I worked on her birthday cake today. We were able to make it this morning, and then when we came in from our gingerbread party, we were able to finish icing it.
  • At 1:30 Kennedy arrived and rode with us to the Christmas party of the year-Traci's gingerbread house party. I just absolutely love it. There are people there that I haven't seen for a whole year so it is fun getting to catch up with a few people. 
  • I am not sure how many people were there today-near one hundred for sure. My kids are at a sweet spot and still enjoy decorating, but they also need very little help. Because of this, I was able to help tie most of the houses when the kids were finished decorating. 
  • Reagan took a lot of time with hers, but Keaton worked the longer than almost everyone there. Anderson and Graham both left 2 sides of there without any candy or decorations. Campbell helped quite a few little kids with their houses before even starting on hers. Whitman worked really hard on his and had a theme for each side of his house.
  • When it was almost over, they invited us to stay for hot dogs. We roasted hot dogs over the fire-Whitman said that he had never done that before. It was nice to hang out and visit for a little bit. Robby met us there and after a bit, Reagan drove the big kids home. They enjoyed it all, but they were also ready to go home.
  • Keaton, Campbell and Whitman were not ready at all to go home. Whitman was living his best life playing on the trampoline until it was time for us to leave. Once at home, Campbell finished her cake while I put things away. 
  • Kennedy and Reagan found some more food to eat. There were some more snacks for everyone, and finally a Hallmart movie for me.
