Since my Dad's demise was a mere one month plus away, it's kinda quiet around our house this Christmas. No decorations, no tree*, no lights.
*updated: I woke up this morning and found an elf had put up a Christmas tree lights and all, in the corner of our sitting room! (?)
But I did make some gingerbread cookies for the kids at the Daycare Centre - in the shape of houses. I hand-cut each one (what I won't do for these kids) before baking them as I don't know if a house-shaped cutter can be found anywhere.
The kids had fun icing them!
Then I decided to make some gingerbread men for my own distribution...
They started out pretty normal...
See? just a regular guy.
Then I started thinking, "How 'bout I change their eyes to make them look more gleeful...and ..and..add a bowtie here.."
"Oh, oh, can't have guys alone... should have some spunky gals..."
And then it kinda went out of control....."we could even go oriental...."
Next time, I'll just stick to houses....
