I has been a bit since I posted. I have been busy working --- have to pay for those Christmas gifts! (and the new washing machine/dryer) My washing machine has been having issues for the past month or two. It is washing fine - but the dial is not advancing so it has to be manually moved to the next stage or it just stays stuck where it is --- like spinning clothes for 1 hour! And as you can imagine it is hard to remember the washing machine - it is something you usually put on - and leave to do it's own thing. It is the machine that came with the house when we bought it - so we went out last week - just to look - and bought a Whirlpool front load washer and dryer - for a very good price at our favourite place to buy appliances. So -- Merry Christmas Pam and Jim -LOL
While we were in Seattle we stayed at the Sheraton Hotel. The week we were there they were setting up the Christmas decorations and they set up a Gingerbread House display to raise money for Juvenile Diabetes.
So here are a few pictures - to start the Christmas season.
The theme of the house was "Super Hero" I think this is Batman filling in for Santa.
I really liked this one it was just full of lots of details. It was quite large -- 4-5 feet high
This was a drawer that would move in and out and the light was on and all the super hero toys were made of candy.
There was another one that was the Batman house with a lot of details and I really liked it but I didn't get a very good picture of it.
I have been doing a bit of quilty things this weeks as well -- between shifts.
I had a dream last night that I got ready to go do all my Christmas shopping and it was Christmas DAY! Such a nightmare - I better get going - I now have my list -- sort of!
