I went down on Friday to put all these darn gingerbread houses together.....10 of these suckers!!!
This is what happens when you let a 3 year old get ahold of the red frosting! LOL

Porter and his finished house! Braxton wasnt done with his yet and then santa came and I totally forgot to get a pic of it later!

Brynlee was SO excited that she got not only a Barbie, but a BELLE one!!
2008 I was changing Brynlee's bed sheets and she comes up to me and says, "Mom are you changing my sheeps?"
I was getting Brynlee some milk and she says, "no momma I want Strawberry gortgake milk" it took me a minute to realize she wanted strawberry milk. can you tell she loves strawberry shortcake?!
