kate5kiwis: On the Eighth Day of Christmas

“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

On the Eighth Day of Christmas

we were going to make some *sparkly* Christmas Bikkies using the Gingerbread House recipe and some silver balls and various sprinkles b-u-t we took a ridiculous amount of time to clean up the Weekend Devastation - couldn't find the carpet ya know - and so we grabbed some incredibly speshal ICED ANIMALS bikkies at the shops instead -

(that we all remember the colours and shapes and *smell* of from our infancy!) for a *tweet* instead - cos we're trying to WAIT to eat The House a bit closer to Christmas!

AND we gave our first REINDEER away to Olly (who came to play after school) and his sister - i really want to pass on "the joy of giving" to our children - they were so excited about the baby hats to Haiti - but candy canes are harder to give away!! funny that.

I let my girls eat their gingerbread houses right away. Usually they never get around to eating them and they get all crumbly and get thrown out, so....

Iced animals? Oh wow. We only get the chocolate variety here which are great... but I am now looking at the iced ones with drooling eyes.

Double wow: your word verification thing was "inginger"!

Ah yes, lovely animal bicuits...which my girls are rather upset about no longer being able to enjoy, since there is gelatine in them.

Impressive holding out on eating the gingy house!

Ooh - those look nice. The animal crackers in the U.S. don't come iced. How sad and boring is that? They're still good though so I shouldn't complain. ;)
