Yesterday (like so many other families) we went Christmas shopping. The stores were all packed! We did manage to get most of our shopping done. The pictures above were taken at “Bed, Bath and Beyond” towards the end of our expedition. Yes, the boys are both busy playing their Gameboys – we figured they would whine less about the boringness of the store and let us shop in peace if they were occupied.
Last week, Mark bought a kit for a gingerbread house at Wal-Mart. I wasn’t sure it was a good idea. We put the house together last night, and today after church we decorated it. It was actually a lot of fun, if a bit messy. I think Isaac and Jonny ate more candy than they actually put on the house! They keep asking when we are going to EAT the house. To me it doesn’t look all that appetizing – we will see!
In other news, Ben seems to have caught a cold. We are praying this one doesn’t last as long as the last one. Isaac (who probably gave Ben his cold) seems to be improving every day and will be returning to school tomorrow.
