Goody Goody Gumdrops..

Our trip to St. Louis has been fun-filled! We drove in last week and joined Auntie Evonne in Kansas City for her graduation. After a great weekend, we headed back to St. Louis where Granny Smith had some fun adventures planned. She found a gingerbread house before we arrived and decided it would be a special project for Kennedy and her to undertake. Well lets just say Kennedy LOVED this first time experience. It takes a lot of patience, a lot of love, and a BIG sweet tooth (Kennedy has that one down). Thanks for a great time Granny!

Our gingerbread house started here...

We added a little love...

and couldn't forget the goody goody gum drops...

and we ended up with the SWEETEST gingerbread house in St. Louis!

That's all folks!

(Thank you Nana for our wonderful surprise we received today - the dress is beautiful!)

Love the pic of her and Granny Smith. Their faces!! Sorry we won't be seeing you guys in Stl too :(. Sally called me the day after you all were over and went on and on about how precious and well behaved all the children were. She loved having everyone at her place and I only wish we could have been there. We'll have to try for next year...or the year after.
Have a wonderful Christmas. Thinking of you with your hubby away and all. Wow, what a wonderful job you're doing. Merry Christmas!
