Christmas Traditions

10 12 2008


I love Christmas!!!! It’s by far my favorite holiday! I think i love it so much because of all my families tradition. Ever since I can remember, my family has gathered together to test our skills in contructing gingerbread houses. Each family gets to decorate a homemade gingerbread house (courtesy of the best grandma in the world). It is so much fun to get together and eat bunches of candy & use our creative talents (or lack thereof). Here is a picture of the gingerbread masterpiece my husband and I made. Enjoy! 





Note the pine tree made of candy corns. Also the wood pile made of chocolate coverd tootsie rolls (my husbands idea).


It’s Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas

Today was the annual Christmas open house for Backman Title Services.  I can’t believe how quick Christmas is coming. Seem like it was just Halloween a couple weeks ago. Any who…… This centerpiece was made of Noble Fir, Red roses and Variegated holly. I also added some pine cones & bullion wire for a little spice. Once again please excuse the photo and lighting. Another infamous iPhone shot.
