I hope everyone has a lovely Christmas with family and friends, and a renewed love for Christ--remembering how God became man to show us how to live, only to die for us so that we will have eternal life...
Thank you new bloggy friends for your time and friendship...! It is a blessing to me.

Dear Friends and Family,

Please help us, we (the poor family) have been affected by a terrible disaster. Many of us spend our entire lives working and putting so much effort into our houses. If you are one of these people, you will find the following to be quite distressing. Thankfully, everyone made it out OK. Please help us pick up the pieces of our sweet, fragile lives.
If you think you can help, don't hesitate to contact us.
Your friends at Gingerbread Lane.

OK, so we were a little overly dramatic about our poor gingerbread house. It was quite funny. Hubby dotted on little circles of frosting to hold up the house and forgot to put frosting in the base (heee heee) which I found out when I went back to decorate and the walls and roof were sliding all over! It was pretty funny.

We have been less than faithful with our Jesse Tree for the past few nights, but we have been doing it, just night every single night. The times we do it, we enjoy it and the conversations are great. I highly recommend it to anyone.

Here are some pics we did for our Christmas card...I can never get that one perfect shot so I always make a collage--allowing everyone to have fun viewing the process we went through in trying to get "that perfect photo!"

Ooh, one more thing, our Christmas pageant is tomorrow night at church...I'm so excited. It's a contemporary comedy called, "The Surprising Christmas Pageant." The script is very funny. We've used all our Children's Church classes on Sundays and Wednesday to prepare the set, make the programs and practice. It's been a wonderful six weeks of all of us working towards the same goal of the pageant. Tomorrow it all plays out...!!! I'm excited!
On to the interesting part of this post:
