In addition to their fun visit, they brought us a very sweet gift. Take note: if you want to make a busy mom happy, then bring her the gift of time that looks like the pieces of a gingerbread house wrapped up in wax paper accompanied by a Christmas take-out box filled with candy. Isn't that just a brilliant idea? Man, that gift made me HAPPY! D and I had talked about making our annual gingerbread house several times, but to be honest, after baking for my cookie exchange and a few other recent events, my baking mojo had seriously worn off and I just couldn't face it.
Yesterday was the first official day of kid Christmas holidays. We put our gift to good use and this is what we made.
It's as cozy as our real life cottage! Thanks L3. You're the best.
Tomorrow D and I are going to another friend's house where I'll be teaching 3 girls how to make meringue mushrooms and buche de noel! Woohoo - baking mojo is back!
