Well it is certainly looking a lot like Christmas here in Utah. When we woke up this morning to go to the gym there wasn't any snow on the ground. When we got home from the gym, this is what our yard looked like:
Last Sunday we made gingerbread houses with Josh's family. I have only made one gingerbread house like this before and it was when I was like 5. It was fun to spend time with the family and be creative together. Josh made sure our house was indestructible.
Look at all these women! We are so thrilled to be having a nephew any day!!!! We need some testosterone around here!
My darling friend Tiffany came over to help me decorate it. I love Tiff. We have known each other since we were three. She is one of two people I know who is the same size I am.
This year I wanted to make my tree a little more exciting to look at than it has been the past couple of years. I decided to glitter some of my ornaments. To glitter your ornaments all you have to do is:
- use a foam brush to apply Elmers glue to half of your ornament (you can also use a spray adhesive)
- while glue is still wet sprinkle a fine powder glitter on the wet side (I love Martha Stweart glitter. You can get it at Michael's.)
- let that side dry, it only takes a few minutes, and apply glue and glitter to the other side of your ornament.
