Merry Christmas from our family to yours!

I thought on this festive day, I would share with you my son's gingerbread house.  Rolan and Grandma Hoffer worked together in his first grade class to create this piece of art.
Now I have never made a gingerbread house, but I do think his class had a few tips you might find helpful if you make your own.  First they did not assemble the graham house ahead of time and let it dry, instead they glued a small milk carton to the plate and applied icing and graham crackers to that.  Second the tree to the left is made of an ice cream cone, turned over and covered in icing.

Now if I were to ask Rolan what was his favorite part of creating this, he would say the abominable snow monster pictured below.

So this holiday season, my hopes are that you surround yourself with the sweet things in life that really matter like family and friends.  Above all remember that our dear Savior was born on this night to show God's love for us.  May His great love and peace bless your families and fill you with joy this Holiday Season.
