Christmas Fun

So, it has been a while since I updated, due to the fact that I just came back from 3 weeks of holidays. Before leaving Owen and I finished our gingerbread house. This is my first attempt at making a gingerbread house from scratch. My cutters were a little bent so it was fun trying to get the house together with minimal gaps, but I would say it didn't turn out too bad.

After that adventure was a dinner with friends followed with frantic cleaning and leaving for BC at 4am the next the morning. BC was great and it was either snowing or sunny the entire time we were there! It was the perfect while christmas with all the snow, and I felt like a little kid again. In true small child mode, I decided it was time to make a snowman, and after shovelling the driveway Owen decided he had enough snow to make a snowcave.

And finally - presents. I recieved a number of cookbooks this year and am really excited to start trying the recipes. But the best present this year was the t-shirt that I recieved from Owen - it really does suit me!

I love it, and the material is super soft. It was definately one of my favourite gifts this year. I hope everyone had a good holidays and a happy New Year.
