Gingerbread Houses

Well this was our attempt at gingerbread houses... With the boys, I wanted to do them the easy way.. you know when we glue graham crackers onto milk cartons and just smear icing on and decorate. Since they don't have graham crackers here I made my own, and now milk cartons so I had to use another box. It was really all about the decorating and the boys had a great time.. I think Evan ate more than he put onto his house. Just another American Christmas tradition we are trying to continue.. maybe one day we will graduate to the Real gingerbread houses! Hope you all are enjoying the holiday season!!

Aiden's Masterpiece

Evan's .. He only got to the roof, I think he was too busy eating.

Well we have been busy... the holiday season is upon us and is coming fast. The boys are out of school tomorrow and Scott will be done with work on Friday. So the last couple of weeks have been filled with holiday parties and "year end" events. The boys have finished up all their sports and classes for the end of the year. They have both graduated to the next class.. Evan will now be a Zebra and Aiden will now be a Lion. They are very excited to move to a new class. I have been busy with lots of things... I hosted a cookie exchange this past weekend and it went very well. Most here had never heard of anything like it so it was fun. The problem is that now we have tons of yummy cookies.. and all I do is eat them! We have decked our halls and are ready for christmas. Scott's parents will be here on Friday and then we are off traveling to show them the sites and be back right before Christmas. So this week will be about the last minute preparations and we are making gingerbread houses this week.. so look for more exciting posts to come. Hope everyone out there has a wonderful holiday season!

Sad Farewell

This post is a little late but...Recently we said a sad good bye to two of the American families that have been here with us. It was a great night of food, drinks and good memories. They are greatly missed and we can't wait to see them again state side. I know they are happy to be back home! Good Luck and Keep in Touch!

We are Thankful

We celebrated our feast on Saturday with the two other GM American families and the newest GM family from Mexico celebrated with us for their first Thanksgiving. I had a great time cooking for days and I think everything turned out pretty well and everyone had a good time.
