Since then we have relaxed things and not had things so set in stone and we just enjoy each other. I don't talk about our youngest son on here much or at all really. His name was Dannett and he passed away 14 years ago 5 days before Christmas he was a very special child who we loved and still love very much. He is missed on a daily basis and Christmas even more so, the holidays are a reminder to us of how precious life is and how many blessings we have in this world. So every year from Thanksgiving to Jan 1 we as a family, but mostly hubby and I as a couple close in and embrace, we are a private family anyway but more so at this time of year. The hectic racing around and holiday parties are not something we enjoy, we enjoy each other and find things we can enjoy together.
One of those things is making ginger bread houses, it started with my mom buying the kids a kit one year and has turned into a yearly thing. This year we wanted to try our hand at making it from scratch not a kit and baking the ginger bread ourselves. We didn't realise it was going to be such an interesting project, but it is done and looks great.

We did a modified church pattern.
And I finished the top to Wyatt's quilt this morning, I am so happy at how it turned out and it was so easy! Now time for the batting and the back and tie it and it is done. I can't wait to make one for our bed and for Ashley to make one, I think she will love it.
Have a wonderfully blessed day,
