There are some Christmas traditions that people over look sometimes. There's some really fun and childlike activities that will even put a smile on an adult's face. One of those activities is putting together a gingerbread house. I mean come on, it's putting together a sugar filled candy house? What's not to love? You get to play with candy!! I also know that I wasn't the only one who saw that Starbucks released their own version of a gingerbread house this year. I was too excited to see that cute little kit one winter morning when I was getting my coffee. That's when Mama Katz and I decided that this was a must-have item this holiday season.
I know I'm almost a month behind here, but I finally had time to sit down and go through the pictures that I took for Thanksgiving. I've mentionted this a couple times now, but for Thanksgiving my family decided to rent a beach house down in North Carolina. It was really awesome because it allowed me to still work so I could take a longer Christmas break. This was really touching to me that my whole family (dogs included) came to visit me and see what my life is like down south. Let's be honest though, no one was complaining about the view.
