Ahhh...the Traditions of Christmas

As with many of you, our house has been buzzing with holiday activity.
There's decorating the tree...
Listening to the Christmas story at the Courthouse Lighting in Prescott...
Stopping by the casino to see the amazing gingerbread houses on display...
Caroling at the retirement home...Carving the pumpkin....
WAIT.....Carving the WHAT??? I admit it. That bit of Halloween got away from me. I BOUGHT the pumpkin with plenty of time, but it just never happened. We were TOO busy. The amazing thing is, this pumpkin never rotted! Not even a teensy bit! I saw my chance to make it up to my girls. We went to work and made an....
ELF-O-LANTERN!!
A perfect mixture of Christmas and Halloween...kind of like this gingerbread house that won a prize in Prescott last weekend.
