Annual Gingerbread Weekend Dec. 7th

All most there. 5 batches gingerbread dough.

8 Rectangular Houses, pieces all done.

7 A-frame Houses, roof pieces done, 10 more end pieces to go

- and I have to make another batch of dough.

Next comes icing and gluing. Mixing, rolling no problem but squeezing the icing might be a bit much for my arthritic thumbs (made worse by the egg carving )

Might have to call in some help and I'm such a control freak! Hate doing that! but dragns have gotten over worse.

oops forgot the pic... and it's on its' side again!!!

I didn't put up very many decorations this year. Just the table cloths and a few festive rocking horses.

The house usually looks like a gaudy department store of Christmas decorations but for some reason everything was, well... just one of those years.

No tree, no angels on the chandeliers, no boughs of lit greenery on mantels or cupboards, no nativity.

and my excuse is - someone stole them all.

sorry folks, again without actually going and taking another picture I just can't seem to edit the photo's, and again again, I keep forgetting to take the picture in the correct direction. I take the photo's for my computer not thinking about posting them here. So sorry.
