Happy Christmas Eve!

here are a few pics of what we've been doing this week.

I didn't want to do a gingerbread house this year, but I changed my mind, and bought one. They loved it, so it was worth the mess.
I did the icing, and the girls put on all the candy.

love this little Christmas baby!

making sugar cookies with the girls.
we also made a half bathch of cupcakes. I let the girls look through my cupcake books and pick out a Christmas one to do.
they chose ornaments. they were fun and easy. Ben did the 2 at the far right and bottom of the cookie sheet.
this morning I let the girls decorate the sugar cookies we baked yesterday. Kara always wants to use all different colors, and do it like coloring a picture. I made her stick to white or brown, with a few sprinkles options.
happy girls. We have been watching SO many Christmas cartoons the last few weeks. Yesterday and today were no exception. (excuse the chocolate stain on my sweater. I was making a pie, and didn't notice it.)
I don't think this kid could be any more excited about Christmas! We are just trying to keep them busy so they wont nap. We don't need them staying up late tonight. Hopefully a long drive in the car to look at lights will get them tired later.
I wish everyone could hear how cutely she says. "Kwissmiss" and "thana kwas".
Karalee and Kiersten have been dying to wear their new Christmas dresses forever. I now realize I need to get a good standing shot of them wearing them. Kiersten loves to dress up and be "fancy". She was thrilled to get her hair curled.

Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas tomorrow!!!
