We broke the decorating into two days this year. The day we cut down our tree, we went to Missoula to see baby Alexie and by the time we got home it was all mom and dad could do to get the lights on the tree. Of course we had promised Lanie we would decorate when we got home so we let her hang a few ornaments and called it good!
Whoever says these kits are a waste of money has never done one with a 3 year old and a 1 year old! The kids loved it and they could actually help. With everything pre-prepared it only took about 20 minutes which is perfect for their attention span.The only draw back is that the icing and gingerbread tasted horrible. They must put something in it to try and detour kids from eating the ingredients. Let me tell you, it was disgusting. It kept all of us of from nibbling except Jack. He wasn't stopped. Finally we put him in his high chair and let him munch away. I think it turned out pretty darn cute

Phillipsburg has one of those cool Fort-style playgrounds at the school. So after the cabin we hit the candy factory and then went to burn the calories off at the playground. If for any reason, some of you make it to western Montana, Phillipsburg should be a stop on your tour. It is an adorable historic town filled with cute shops and old historic buildings, and an incredible old fashioned candy shop.
Mom, I'm sure this brings back the same memories for you as it immediately did for me. I remember many a floor pallet being spread for me, Chuck, Rory, and Erin...
