This was our first gingerbread house. It was one of those kits. Seema just wanted to eat all the candy she could get her hands on without us knowing.


This year we decided to host a 2 day event. My main goals was to have the family together. That’s really all I cared about this year. We didn’t cook the big turkey or go all out on a feast. Instead we had a simple Christmas Eve dinner followed by a couple movies, then Christmas Day brunch with a few more movies and games, then a simple dinner of manicotti and salad. It went pretty much as I had pictured.
