This week has been about creating canvases.  Our family for years has had a tradition of decorating personal sized gingerbread houses.  At one point we had nearly 30 young people coming to our little house and filling it with laughter, joy and noise.  But as time went on that has changed and we have downsized.  Our kids are no longer at home so it is time to “rent” friends children.  We have 13 coming on Sunday, ranging from 2 to 14.  Most of the parents will stay and so we get to catch up with their lives as well.  I love the joy and happiness we experience with these children as they decorate their own gingerbread homes.

See you on Monday with photos of our young artists and their creativeness!
