Every day is a holiday with gingerbread cookies!

Dakota and I made these last week while I was in Fresno getting my eyes fixed. What we lack in any inate skill is compensated by heartfelt enthusiasm.

Best Wishes for a Happy Holiday and more Prosperous New Year.

Finally home again. We went to Kansas for a week for an early Christmas with Creighton's family. I dropped him off in Spokane and spent the rest of the month in California getting eye surgery and a pre-Christmas visit with my family. I had limited Internet access, so it was too big a hassle to post anything along the way.

The Story of the Christmas Ornaments...
I bought some old tea infusers off CraigsList. I thought that making them into ornaments would be a fun project with the boys, so I hauled them down to Fresno. Here's one of Dakota's....

But the really funny part was that when we opened one of the ornaments, we found a very old, stale bud wrapped in a cigarette celophane wrapper. This isn't a very good picture, but we had to document the event. LOL I'm just glad that airport security didn't spot it. THAT would have been a nasty surprise.
