We celebrated my Great Grammy's birthday.....and me and my sister were trying to make grammy feel younger...As you can see by the cake below...and the matching "91" candle that my sister bought, we were turning back time, because as it turns out...Grammy asked, "how old am I?", and me and my sister thought she was 91. BUT, then came my mom with her exact dates, and it turns out, Grammy was turning 92!
We ate pizza and more cake for dinner. A mean game of monopoly went down with my sister, brother-in-law, my mom, and Jordan (I was on, "watch all the babies patrol", and didn't play)....Jordan won and I cheered for my monopoly champ.
Finished putting clean sheets on my bed....one of my favorite things....and now I'm in my furry robe typing this....
huge hugs...and may someone always tell you you're a year younger on your birthday, to at least make you feel better.... your kandee

Get your virtual boots on, tighten up your cowboy buckle and come on out to the ranch with us:
past the adorable cluster of little old fashioned mailboxes....and looked at the huge sky, the big tin barn that stores all the hay, and big pastures...made me day dream of owning a big ranch. Baking cinnamon rolls, feeding my "dream" horses, sitting on my porch watching the sunset...
and just like when I was little, I would look at "horse supply" catalogs for hours...dreaming of having a big ranch.....
horse poop in your boots...and love in your heart....

I do not take "before" photos of the gingerbread houses, but I promise you these "afters" are extremely different.
Our bowls full of candy and treats!
My little niece at work on her house!
Alani, (and her new, extreme make-over haircut which we all LA-LA-Love) putting a ridge of gumballs on her rooftop. (And yes, that is my preggy sister in the background wielding a bag of royal icing)
I am in love with Alani's snowflake trees and trim on her house!
Blakey accidentally knocked over a bowl full of "Christmas Nerds"....which went "bouncing" all over the floor! We all started laughing because these houses turned out to be one of the biggest "messy" projects ever! Me and my sister spent the night vacuuming, sweeping, more vacuuming and sweeping. But it was worth it...how much "messy" fun the kids had!
Alani's backyard and her little candy and candy cane sleigh she made.
And the best one of all, due to sheer size......my 2 and half year old niece, Sydney's miniature gingerbread house...can you see it? ha ha ha ha! Her yard got the majority of decorations!
Huge hugs and tiny gingerbread houses.... love and sweets from my house to yours, kandee

Christmas morning...and my all my sister's beautifully wrapped presents....were so pretty I didn't want to open them! Blakey ready for present opening action
(If you missed my "Holiday House Tour....CLICK HERE)
my santa, reindeer and fun present had all been opened....
One problem, was when I was wrapping them to make the "present wrapping video", I forgot to write the names of who a few of them went to...so I made some bad guesses and a couple got opened that were not for that person! ha ha ha
me and baby
She made us a yummy taco lunch for Christmas and coincidentally, as she was serving the taco stuff....Feliz Navidad came on the Holly Jolly Pandora Station! ha ha ha Alani said that's her favorite Christmas song!
huge, and Christmas cookies, your kandee

I made a special craft out of them to show you guys - but we had a craft-mishap- which I will fix, because you guys will love how they come out!
So, as we waited in line at Target...we were taking pictures with my phone to keep us busy while the lady in fron of us bought a lot of things and sleds- maybe she's going somewhere snowy because there's no snow here.
WHAT WE BOUGHT AT TARGET:
~hot pink fuzzy slippers
~a movie for Jordan for Christmas, which is hidden under the Hershey's kisses
~Hershey's Kisses - at my sister's request, because she want us to bake peanut butter cookies and put them on top
~Peppermint Hershey's Kisses - were not on the shopping list, but they looked yummy and said, "take me home with you"...so I did.
~A Mrs. Meyers Candle in Spice Cake scent - it smells so delectably delicious- I want to bite it.
~A pink ruffley headband for Alani and a sparkle star headband for me - even though they normally hurt my head after a while.
And right before we bundled up to listen to Christmas music and head to Target for the 245,497 time.
I took this picture and thought....
What if baby Ellie Bellie (real name Elyse), had been twins! ha ha ha
YAY! It's almost Christmas.....
Best Compliment: My brother-in-law said, "It looks like you had your house professionally decorated for Christmas".

ALMOST CHRISTMAS EXCITEMENT and HUGS....your kandee
