Sarah's Thanksgiving weekend

I've told you a bit about our weekend--mostly Sarah's adventures in shopping. But here are a few more tidbits from our Thanksgiving and afterward.

We went to my parents' for Thanksgiving dinner. Dad had bought a gingerbread kit for Sarah to build and decorate a gingerbread house after we ate. Sarah LOVED doing this! Here is a picture of her finished handiwork:

She has had a very good time eating the gingerbread house too. It's about halfway gone now. So it's a good thing Dad got a picture to preserve the project! ;)

On Saturday, we went to do a bit more Christmas shopping. I was shopping for a teenager, so we were in the Junior department at Kohl's. One of the skimpy shirts that is so in fashion these days caught Sarah's eye. Her comment? "That's too small!" What a good girl! ;)

We watched the cartoon version of How the Grinch Stole Christmas! last night. Fun!

And since yesterday officially kicked off the Advent season, I wish you all a joyful and blessed time of celebration and reflection. :)

She's such an artist! I can tell you my boy would never have gotten to that stage...he'd have eaten the roof and the decor before we even got the walls up. It's an excellent gingerbread house. :)
