Today we built a house. A gingerbread house. We gave our daughter and son-in-law the day off to go out and do some Christmas shopping and have lunch out in a nice place without having to cut up somebody's meat or dodge spilled milk. Besides, we wanted a day with the "Grands" to build a gingerbread house.
We got there about 10:00 this morning and we brought Annie the Schnauzer, too. She is always invited as our daughter and her family love Annie very much. Who doesn't? We quickly sent Darin and Stephanie on their way so we could get to work.
The girls were very excited and could hardly wait until we got the kit opened and set out all the supplies.
We sampled way too many of the candies (good thing I bought extras) as we went about the job of construction.
We had a great time and took a lot of photos for the girl's albums, which I am still trying to catch up on. When the house was finished, they thought it was fabulous.
While we waited for Mommy and Daddy to get home, we fixed lunch and then played Uno and Junior Clue. Then it was time to take Annie for a walk around the block. Grandma also had to do some coloring with Zoey and Mackenzie while Papa enjoyed channel surfing through the football games.
We got home around 5:00 this evening, fixed a quick supper and enjoyed a movie on TV. Annie is exhausted, as she always is when we return home, and is out like a light on the couch. Like Grandma and Papa, she likes to visit the "Grands", but loves to come back to our peaceful RV home.
Until next time.....so long for now!
