Sorry for the long delay in blog posts! December has been really busy (As always!)
Christmas is just around the corner! Can you believe it!? I've always wanted to do a Gingerbread House, you know, the real, traditional, homemade kind! I've done the graham cracker ones before, but never a homemade, cut out your own pieces kind. For some reason, those ones have always seemed a bit intimidating.
We all thought this would be the year that it would happen... but as the month flew by and only a few days before Christmas we began to worry that it might not happen. However, after being snowed in these past few days... I got the courage to try it! I have the pieces baked and just waiting for them to cool before putting them together!! I shall post a picture when it's completed! (Cross your fingers and hold your breath!)
Until then - Downton Abbey Fans... check out this Gingerbread version of Downton Abbey!! It is so cool!!! Maybe I'll try this next year!!??? :)
A Couple of weeks ago, mom signed up for a Give Away here at Relevant Tea Leaf. She just signed up for fun and didn't expect to win anything, because we usually don't win things! A week or so later, we received this large package in the mail...
What could it be!!??? We had no idea!!
Then Mom remembered the Give Away!!!
Wow, we feel so lucky!!! What a fun surprise!!!

After a day in town running errands and doing some shopping, we treated ourselves to an afternoon Teatime and girly movie. We had purchased some yummy treats - German Stollen, Chocolate Tarts, Cake, Fruit Tarts... It was delightful!
