Christmas 2011 (Part 2)

On the Friday before Christmas (Christmas Eve Eve), my husband's parents were both off from work so we went down to New Bern to visit with them since we would not be seeing them on Christmas. My husband wanted to order in so that more time would be spent with his parents and less time at a restaurant. He loves pizza so his parents picked up a couple of pizzas for lunch and made a fresh salad. After lunch, we decorated gingerbread houses! (A few days earlier, I had made gingerbread houses for my Activity Day girls (ages 8-11) at church and he got a bit jealous and wanted to decorate gingerbread houses too.) I made 3 more gingerbread houses so that we could decorate them with his parents on our visit. It was a lot of fun and Bridget even got into the decorating (after she did a little bit of eating).

Here we are getting started:

Wow, she's so talented with that icing!:

A mouthful of candy and 'hogging' all the yellow icing:

This was the first time she had tried most of these candies, since I'm so strict on her candy intake. It's all for her benefit, but since it's Christmas, I let it slide... a lot.

Next was present time. Grandma and Granddaddy bought a couple of gifts and Bridget got to open them a few days before Christmas. I didn't get pictures of everything, but here are a couple of the first gift she opened (a pretend vacuum cleaner):

After a little bit of play time, it was time for us to be heading back home. But not until getting a picture of Bridget with her Sparrow grandparents:
