The Christmas Countdown

We have a number of activities that kick off the Christmas countdown at our house, and they have become cherished traditions over the years. After all, as I've said before, the anticipation is a large percentage of the fun! I can't resist sharing this one with you.

Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Lawrence has an annual gingerbread house auction as a fund raiser, and Ginny has made an entry for a number of years. The girls decided to take it on as a team in 2009, so our house was a beehive of activity tonight. If you'd like to see it in all its three-dimensional glory (along with some pretty fabulous adult entries by architects and other creative types), head on down to the Eldridge Extended at 8th & Vermont. It's one of those "feel-good" activities that will put a smile on your face for the rest of the day!
