Christmas Prep

Somehow the boys and I have managed to accomplish a few Christmas prep activities without one or all of us dissolving into tears. We made gingerbread houses


They went to see Santa



Asher cheesed it up in front of the Christmas tree


We even made sugar cookies, Buckeyes, and Ritzy Peanut Butter Cookies via Beth@I Should Be Folding Laundry. Although if I'm being honest mine look like the Frankenstein of the Ritzy Peanut Butter Cookie world. But they all eat the same, right? Also my sugar cookies were blah enough that I went back and iced them with the leftover white almond bark and added sprinkles. Surely that'll spruce them up, yeah? 

Tomorrow, Christmas Eve, we will be decorating the big dog gingerbread house, eating the crap out of the Mr's 'pizza snacks' which are not at all pizza-like but they're yummy to my tummy, and desperately trying to maintain some level of decorum while the boys lose their minds as they wait for Christmas morning. I think blasting Toy Jackpot and I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas all day should help, don'tcha think?
