Let the year-end festivities begin! We’ve been celebrating Hanukkah and decorated the Christmas tree. Grammy and the girls worked on this year’s gingerbread house, which is a real achievement. The terrific trio has greatly improved their gingerbread house building skills.
One can appreciate the thoughtful detail in this year’s masterpiece. Honestly, I’m half expecting to see Hansel and Gretel walk up the gumball path to the front door and be pulled inside by the evil witch.
I am starting to get into the holiday spirit. Just a little. Refraining from getting too excited quite yet. There are still a few days to go before my birthday and a few more after that until Christmas and New Year’s. It will be 2013 before we know it. I don’t know whether I should laugh or cry at the frightening speed at which time flies.
