Fabulous DIY Sled...

Don't you love this DIY sled from DIY Network ???

Look at the "bucket" on that thing. 
I'm pretty sure at least 7 of our grandkids could 
jump into that at the same time.

It looks like a ton of fun waiting to happen!
Must make.

When I heard the word Gingerdoodle I thought it was a new breed of doggie, but it's actually a new variety of cookies. It's a cross between a gingersnap and snickerdoodle. Some call them Snickersnaps. When I saw these cookies on Pinterest I was intrigued. Two of my favorite cookies are ginger cookies and snickerdoodles, so I naturally thought by combining them it might produce the ultimate cookie.

Unfortunately, it did not. I realized I am a purist when it comes to my gingersnaps and snickerdoodles. The combination of the two did not give "enough" of either flavor, so, for me, it was disappointing.

This may have been, however, the first time I didn't particularly care for a cookie. It's nice to know {when pressed} my sweet-tooth is somewhat discriminating. Certainly a new concept for me.

Enjoy the holidays!

Beautiful Nativity...

Wishing you a beautiful Christmas...

"The previous record for the world’s largest live nativity scene, with 898 people, took place last year in the United Kingdom. That record was recently broken when 1,039 people dressed as wise men, shepherds, angels, Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus, participated in a huge production to re-create the Savior's birth as part of a larger movement for sharing the gift of Christ.

The event took place at Rock Canyon Park in Provo, Utah and was witnessed by Guinness World Record judge Michael Empric. The new world record resulted in a video collaboration of “Angels, from the Realms of Glory,” which included the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, The Piano Guys, David Archuleta, Peter Hollens, and many other Utah YouTubers, filmed by Devin Graham. The Organizers said that breaking the world record was secondary to highlighting religious faith over materialism." (source)

Merry Christmas.
