Gingerbread Men and Decorating the Tree

 It is a yearly tradition for me to make gingerbread men with Isabelle. I can remember so clearly her sitting in her bouncy chair when she was just a few months old while we started our now 4 year tradition...we blasted Christmas music and went to town. I love traditions! Here are a few shots of this year's gingerbread men (which Isabelle was not as crazy about as Judah-who knew?)

The day after Thanksgiving we decorated the Christmas tree-it was such a fun morning. Everyone in their jammies, Christmas music blasting, and the kids having free reign to decorate.....really...really what is not to love about this time of year??!!

Win some lose some

I really enjoy making food-and making it from scratch as much as I am able.  Some meals are hits, some are misses. The other night we decided to make ravioli. We love pasta in this house (insanely love) and figured how hard could it be? Well it was hard. We failed. (thick-much too thick pasta) We tried again...and kinda failed again (who knew I HATED Italian parsley so much, and when you hate the filling it is hard to enjoy the rest) was slightly better than the first time, but not enough that we were proud of ourselves. Oh well. I still love making food-and sometimes I don't fail. :) Like the time I made PF Chang's Spicy Chicken.....
the masters at work

yes-Judah is always my goofball:)

PF Chang's Spicy Chicken and good.
