Merry Christmas!

This is my favorite time of the year..I LOVE buying presents for others and seeing their facial expressions. I think i went a little overboard this year...but i think making my friends and family smile is very much worth it! This is a time of giving...and i will give anything to see a smile on others is short. Let's make the most of it while we are here!
Hope a i bring  a little smile to you today!
Even though i don't eat meat...i do make it for the family!!!

Gingerbread house decorating!

We have a family tradition, that i still..LOVE! It's making gingerbread houses. The kids really enjoy it...but so do i. I love the act of being creative and making it my own. This is something that began when my sister and i had a children ( i have a girl and my sister has a boy). It started out as a competition me and my nephew against my daughter and my sister... this has carried on for the last 8 years..and my nephew is now 18 and my daughter is 14. Check out the houses and my outfit...

However, I managed to slide myself into the shoe section of course...found an awesome pair of Christian Louboutin. Now let's just see if Santa is listening!!!!
