 Yesterday the boys played with cousins in the snow while the girls made gingerbread.
Claire cooked a few gingerbread men and women holding hands,
she made one of me and Christian and a few other couples
(which I can't say, becuase she'd be furious at me), but they were darling.
My kitchen smelled delicious for hours as we
decorated and cooked all afternoon.
When the boys came home from playing later that evening, they were ecstatic 
to be able to decorate gingerbread army-men and fantastic pirates.
All this week the Little Nies and I will be doing cozy activities
to celebrate our Christmas break and much needed holiday.
I hope they remember our family time and the good feelings in our home. 
If you are looking for a great gingerbread recipe,
