Christmas preparations

Yesterday the girls and I made gingerbread houses from a "Gingerbread mini village kit" that we bought at target. The kit came with 5 small houses, rather than one big one, and I think it was perfect for the girls - as they would have fought like cats and dogs if they'd had to decorate the same house AND they would have probably not finished. As it was, Camila had only enough patience to do two houses, and Mika one. Their creations are below, Camila decided to follow the pictures on the box while Mika chose to let her own imagination guide her.

Camila's houses:

MIka's house:

Last night, after Mike came home from work, we went to the Xmas tree lot that opened up at the closed car dealership around the block and picked up a Xmas tree. Mike carried it home on his shoulders (I think he's still sore!). Today we decorated it, though by "we" I really mean "me" - Mika had no interest (she got her own tree a couple of days ago) and Camila found other things to do. In any case, here is the result:
