'Twas The Night Before Christmas...

Christmas Eve! It's finally here! The kids (both furry and non) are excited for Santa to come, the holiday festivities have been wonderful, and even through all the stress that goes with it... I am definitely a huge fan of Christmas!

Here's the story... so about a month ago, we started our Christmas shopping. I was thinking to myself how awesome this was that I am starting to shop so early (yes one month before Christmas is early shopping for me.) WELL... I was doing great, emphasis on the "was." Things happened, Christmas shopping got put on the back burner for a little bit and there I was, 2 days before Christmas, and out in the midst of all the other crazies like me, who leave their shopping till last minute. *sigh* 1 point - holiday, 0 points - Jenna. That being said... after a lonnnnng and admittedly stressful couple days of shopping, it was a wonderful feeling to sit down with my human kids and create our Disney's Frozen - Ice Palace Gingerbread masterpiece.


Disney's Frozen Gingerbread Ice Castle

I think our palace turned out fantastic, what do you think?

Christmas Eve - tonight, I will be spending the evening with my dogs, cats, kids, and hubby, watching holiday movies like Rudolph The Red-nose Reindeer, and Frosty The Snowman, while drinking some delicious candy cane hot chocolate! What will you be doing this evening?

  3. Your palace turned out fabulous. I will be shopping for a new coffee pot today since mine puked. Yep day before Christmas...joy! Our family gets together at a restaurant for dinner tonight. We don't have little kids in the family anymore so it is nice. You can visit and no one has to cook and clean.

  4. Nice work on the gingerbread house. We have never tackled such a project at our house. The kitties have a cardboard one with a scratcher floor to play in, but that is it. Enjoy your Christmas Eve!

  5. Love the gingerbread house. I am a shop all year kinda gal, so I was done shopping like in November. And next year a bunch of us have decided to stop doing gifts and do experiences, so shopping got easier. My brother-in-law and his dog will be joining my hubby and I around lunch today. We are going to play games and have our Christmas dinner. We will go to the movies tomorrow. Merry, Merry!

  13. Your palace looks great! LOL...and people think I'm crazy going shopping on Black Friday. I imagine that's nothing compared to the craziness in the stores right before Christmas! We're glad you survived and we hope Santa brings you all everything you wish for.
