  The Important Things
Well, final exams have finally rolled around and I'm up to my ears in term papers and study guides. I know I probably should be stressed, but I'm more hopeful, because I know it will all be over in a week. This weekend, I put off the books for awhile and focused on the important things. Jaime (11-y-o brother) spent the night, and we made pomanders, which I've been doing since I was a kid. Mine's hanging above my stove right now, and it smells wonderful!

I sent out my Christmas cards:

And we made gingerbread houses:
Well, Jaime made a gingerbread fort, and it was made of cinnamon graham crackers, but still...

My house is on the left, Kellen's is on the right. Apartently, Kellen missed his calling as an architect. I practically had to stop him before he installed a working garage door. My walls are made out of gingerbread, but being the queen of chewy cookies, I didn't bake it long enough, and it collapsed shortly after construction. Oh well, we had fun.

And that's the important part, right?

Those look awesome! And I'm with you - Kellan's got an eye for complexity yeesh. I'd have a house that looked like a little drawn one LOL
Oh, those oranges are the BEST smelling things, I haven't made one in years! What a good idea, I'll have to pick up some cloves this weekend. :)
