We hope all of you have a great Christmas. If you haven't gotten a Christmas card from us, it's because we haven't sent any. We're taking a family picture next week and then I will send out cards. How grateful we are for our Savior and His atoning sacrifice. We love you all. Merry Christmas!!

JR HIGH UPDATE: Bode came home and saw the cakes and wanted to make one but I ran out of heads so he had to use a kiss. Then Lexi came along and informed me that Bode's by far looked better than mine. Bode had even put a face on his with frosting!! I've been out done but a 6 yr old!!
UPDATE: My E kids came home from school and thought the cakes looked GREAT!! So yeh!! At least my 1st grader is happy.
I seriously have no business being in the kitchen. I truly can't cook, bake or anything of the sort. Come on my MIL is like a professional cake decorator, if she saw these homely cakes, she would die. These poor penguins were kicked out of the South Pole for ugliness for sure. You would think with all the weeding of very fine vinyl, cutting tiny little pieces of paper into a thousand different shapes and sewing, that I could at least decorate a cupcake. Well, I can't. I can't even keep my station clean (as Collette says on Ratatouille "Keep your station clean, or I will kill you!"
I have joined a cooking group, well a swapping group where one of us cooks a meal for 4 families and then we swap so I actually only cook for my family 4 times a week, the other 3 days are brought to us. Well, I have had a few disasters doing that but this is by far one of my worst undertakings. I'm so glad that it's for a bunch of 1st graders that won't really care. However they will want to eat with caution as the only thing holding these babies together is about 10 toothpicks. Next time maybe I'll just buy the cupcakes!! One side note, be sure to make your cupcake decorating debut with a mom who gets PAID to decorate cakes!! That was well thought out. Why didn't I let her bring the treat??

Just a quick update on Lexi and her classroom door...after waiting a week to hear if their door was picked the best, it was announced today that it was. Lexi and her friend Jessy were so excited! I'm sure when Lexi talks to her advisor, he will be thrilled too!!

I'm getting close to being done with teachers' and friends' gifts. Here are the women teachers gifts. They turned out really nice. For the men, we are just giving them Christmas candy. I figured they would like that better any way. What man doesn't love food. Lexi has all her friends gifts done except one girl who is allegric to everything so we are giving her hair stuff. Summer has started on her gifts but she doesn't have nearly the list that Lexi does. I just need to get my neighbors gifts done now. We received candy last night from Phillips' oh so good!! Amy is such a great cook/baker. Just yummy stuff and of course, it is all gone!!
